Decorated veteran, Anthony Woods, came out to his commanding officers during his second year at John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. After two tours in Iraq and a bronze metal, Woods was honorably discharged from the Army on the grounds of "moral and professional dereliction" under the U.S. military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. Woods is considered to be a strong candidate for a potentially vacated congressional seat in the 10th Congressional District of California.
Woods recently discussed his discharge from the military and the effect the discriminatory "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy has on gay and lesbian soldiers on CNN.
