  1. Let’s talk about US Federal government waste of funds! Decorated and recognised with accolades for his work; not one conduct issue, and yet based on who he is, not what he’s done, he’s discharged, and the War Department wastes 16 months ‘investigating.’ Meanwhile, cuts are being made to day care programs because the gov can’t manage its money.

    Perhaps Sir Stirling Moss was unaware that ‘poofters’ are just as masculine as any other hetero fighting for their country and sometimes giving their lives.

    I wish this brave young man the very best in his future endeavours. I hope his settlement was substantial.

    1. A great point about Stirling Moss, Robert. Unfortunately, Moss and his ilk don’t get to hear about these stories and if they did, they’d probably close their ears. They cling onto their bigotry as if it’s a badge of honour.

      The treatment of Mike Almy was beyond disgusting considering he risked his life serving the Allies in the Middle East and the fact that he was one of the top US Air Force officers, so I hope the US Dept. of Defence have had to pay out the exact amount that Mr Almy was due and much more. After what he’s been through, he deserves to live very comfortably for the rest of his life.

        Agree, James. Nothing positive about gay people ever reaches any of the homophobic media such as the Mail, Telegraph and the BBC. If it does, which is rare, they spin it into something negative even when President Obama, leader of the free world demonstrates continued support of equal marriage. They give it short shrift or just don’t mention it at all. What galls me is that nobody ever asks why. We need a media watch organisation comparable to the Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) which has been extremely effective in reporting accuracy and positive images of gay people in the American media. It’s had huge success.

  3. Wow he is hot!

    Good for him I wish him the best in life. I hope there is some justice left for the 1000’s of other service members who were screwed over by the homophobes in the military.
