I Served

I am a US Navy Veteran; and to see a country that does not allow equal rights for all just makes me very sad. I thought I was in the military to “defend freedom and democracy…” and for me to be living in the country I fought for and there not be equal rights for all makes me wonder why I served in the first place. In the NOH8 photo shoot I choose to where my culinary uniform because I am now a Master Chef in training. Just like in the kitchen where you combine many different ingredients to make one beautiful dish; so too should our country allow us to “combine” with one another to make one beautiful thing no matter how different we are or who we love. I GIVE A DAMN!
