While searching the net for an unrelated story, which is pretty amazing but I can't post it cuz it's drug related, I stumbled upon a story about a 20 year veteran USN SEAL who is now a transgender woman and just had to share it with ATS.



The USN's first female SEAL, sort of. Chris Beck's former team members, SEAL Team 6, are praising and supporting him for being the person he always felt he was.

Good for you Kristin Beck!

www.usatoday.com...


In the super-secret world of the Navy SEAL, Chris Beck carried around an explosive secret of his own during his 20 years with the elite, all-male unit: a transgender life.

In the memoirs Warrior Princess, published Saturday, retired Navy SEAL Kristin Beck — formerly Chris — writes about life struggling with her sexual identity and then going public.

Chris Beck served 20 years as a Navy SEAL, including seven combat deployments, and earned a Purple Heart and Bronze Star.

Beck retired from Navy SEAL Team 6 in 2011, only months before it raided Osama bin Laden's hide-out, and was always careful to keep the secret close to the vest.

This story just goes to show that LGBT folk really do know no boundaries when it comes to what they can achieve.
Their personal character is not to be underestimated nor written off as weak or without courage and their contribution to society is just as valuable as anyone else's.

Quite.

Some of the more notorius gangsters and 'hard men' in history were actually gay.

The idea that being gay = weak or somehow pathetic is very wrong.

I wouldn't take the piss out of Ms Beck that's for sure.

I guess someone took "be all you can be" to a whole new level.

Gay is about as different from Transgender as an apple and a walnut.

I have to say, I will never understand what makes a transgender tick. I mean, I'm convinced I'm a lesbian trapped in a guy's body, but I have NO desire to try and BECOME a female. That said, to each their own, and if it makes him/her....err...whatever happy, then by all means, good for them!

That's the Army's motto.

USN = Honor. Courage. Commitment.

Here's a question. The military has at times done involuntary recalls of certain MOS's (skills) of former members being brought back to active duty. What would be done with him/her/it if that were the case here?

I'm thinking they would hand him/her a weapon and say "Go do that thing you do so well!"

But I could be wrong....
