Looks as though most are uncomfortable saying Welcome! But I just did, and nothing bad happened to me, so maybe more will follow. It is not feeling uncomfortable-it is not knowing what to say. It was always unbelievable to me, since you guys did nothing-how you could be treated differently. You are Americans. You fought and died for this country-now, you are brothers and sisters, and I bid you Welcome and all the best that life has to offer.If it was hard to answer, it must have been hard to say-you get double credit!

What a wonderful public service announcement from a very impressive bunch of officers. Thank you so much for putting this out there. Each of you are heros many times over.

I was shunned , alone, no father figure, picked on, beat up, I ran away an live on the streets, got into drugs as a 'pre' - teen, and felt like killing myself , I have massive scars and a deformed face and had to put up with being the odd ball all my life oh and I am HETERO. So do you want to here me whine about it as a man ???? N one I know had Leave It To Beaver, so get on with it you all look like PTSD babies, your grown ups now.
