Having the last word:

“When I was in the military, they gave me a medal for killing two men and a discharge for loving one.”
—Tombstone of Leonard Matlovich, once a U.S. Air Force Technical Sergeant

Matlovich's tomb

This photo was taken by “dbking” on Flickr. It comes with extensive notes about Sgt. Matlovich’s life and achievements. He was the first American soldier to come out as gay and challenge all the way to the Supreme Court the regulations that deprived him of his career, although he was an exemplary soldier and decorated hero.
