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.

Zsa Zsa Gershick served as a reservist in the US Army from 1978 to 1982. She is the author of "Gay Old Girls," as well as a series of articles for "The Texas Observer" and "The Texas Triangle" profiling high-achieving service members discharged for being gay. She lives in Los Angeles.
