November XXVIIIth, MMXVI
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
So the first openly gay U. S. Secretary Of The Army Eric Fanning has been doing a bang-up job since last November MMX when he became "Acting" Secretary & now since June this year as he had the job full time. It is very nice to see that one of the three military secretaries of U. S. Armed Forces isn't discriminated against because he's gay. He can do the job & that is all that matters!
"With their actions, they sent a clear message to our country: that it's possible to take deep pride in being part of our two great families, the U. S. military & the LGBT family."
