Obama Selects Gay Vet to West Point Board

With “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” still waiting to be certified
President Obama nominated Brenda "Sue" Fulton to
be first openly gay member of the Board of Visitors for
the U.S. Military Academy at West Point. Fulton is the
Executive Director of the LGBT West Point alumni
group Knights Out & was a graduate of West Point’s
first class to include female cadets. She served as an
Army captain & company commander after her 1980
graduation from the academy.
The board consists of 9 Congress members & 6
Presidential appointees which provide “independent
advice & recommendations” on matters concerning
the academy to the president. Former congressman
Patrick Murphy, the sponsor of the bill to repeal
“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was recently appointed to
the board.

I’m proud to have the opportunity to support the cadets who will lead our Army in the coming years. And I’m pleased that the president is clearly setting the stage for a post ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ military with appointments like this. Most important, I’m looking forward to supporting West Point as it continues to inspire, educate and train leaders of character, as it always has. It is my honor to continue to serve the Academy and the Army that I love.
