Morgan

U.S. Army Chief Warrant Officer Charlie Morgan came out for the first time during Thomas Roberts' segment on MSNBC this morning as Congressman Mark Udall joined Roberts to talk about the end of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell".

Said Morgan: "I'm finally proud to announce publicly that I am a lesbian...I'm able to now share my family. I have a four-year-old daughter but I also have a same-sex spouse. We have a civil union of almost 11 years and I have not been able until today to actually share my family. My complete family. I am able to put on my desk our family photo and actually share my family with the collegaues I deployed with."

  5. HA! I thought the same thing Tom. :)
    I'm glad our soldiers can FINALLY be honest about who they are.
    Good for her.

  6. I personally know Charlie Morgan, and I had a strong suspicion the first time I met her that she was gay. It doesn't matter to me, but I'm definitely not shocked. My guess is most who know her very well already knew anyway.

  7. The irony is that we see (presumably str8) soldiers dancing with each other in musical videos they put online all the time.
