The 2013 Veteran’s Day Celebrations this year will be bigger than ever before. Thanks to the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, we can finally pay proper tribute all the proud LGBT members of the U.S. Armed Services who have honorably served their country, past and present.

Thank you for risking, and often sacrificing, your lives to protect this country. Even when it treated you as second-class citizens. Your fellow LGBT never forgot your sacrifices.

So, in addition to the Red, White and Blue, let’s celebrate the Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue and Purple, this year too!
