Yes – that Harvey Milk. He joined the United States Navy during the Korean War. Milk served aboard the submarine rescue ship USS Kittiwake (ASR-13) as a diving officer.
Later, he transferred to Naval Station, San Diego to serve as a diving instructor. In 1955, he was discharged from the Navy at the rank of lieutenant, junior grade.
We honor all who serve or have served our country. In the final analysis, sexual orientation should never have acted as a barrier to service.
All we can say with humility is thank you!
