Defense Dept. Posts LGBT Pride Posters in Pentagon


Todd Breasseale, LTC, US Army, at the Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense (Public Affairs) sent Towleroad a copy of the posters that are going up around the Pentagon TODAY, following Defense Secretary Leon Panetta's historic video last week.

Writes Breasseale to Towleroad: "This is a really big deal.  Nearly 20 years in the Army, this July, and I never – EVER – thought I'd see this day come. I'm deeply proud of the Department as a whole and of the individual senior leaders who have tackled this issue head-on and determined that equality is both a force multiplier and the right thing to do.  The Defense Department has a long history of leading in terms of equality an inclusion.  This is another example."
