Gays in the military news: We're finally getting Close, Glenn

by Jeremy Hooper

   Serving in Silence: The Margarethe Cammermeyer Story, the 1995 televised tale of the highest-ranking officer ever to be discharged from the U.S. Military for being gay, will finally be released on DVD on September 12.

Oh, and how we've progressed in the more than 11 years since the film's airing! Don't Ask us how because we simply Don't Tell. You're just gonna have to trust us on this one -- '95 and '06 are as different as the treatment the military extends towards gays and straights!

No word on why it took so long for the film to serve openly as a DVD. But you know how these things are -- it's all about securing the rights.
