    To Serve With Honor

    Leonard Matlovich, a U.S. Air Force sergeant, was awarded the Purple Heart for service in Vietnam, but discharged soon after telling his captain he was gay and appearing in uniform on the cover of Time magazine with the words, "I Am a Homosexual" emblazoned next to him. While he may have "settled" in his fight against the Air Force, he was a pioneer in the fight for gay and lesbian rights in the military.
