Although 79 percent of Americans support allowing gay and lesbian troops to serve openly, the military continues to hunt down and discharge qualified service members. This series of profiles of lesbian service members shows the flaws in the assertion that allowing gay and lesbian service members to serve openly and with honor will cause a breakdown of morale and unit cohesion.
