Congratulations to the Army’s Very First Lesbian General, Tammy Smith!
With that simple gesture, Brig. Gen. Tammy Smith became the country’s first openly gay general.
The promotion of Smith, the highest-ranking gay or lesbian to acknowledge their sexual orientation while serving, comes less than a year after the repeal of “don’t ask, don’t tell,” the policy that did not allow gay or lesbians to serve openly in the military.
Congratulations, Brig. Gen. Smith!
