Throughout history gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender Americans have served in the Armed Forces of the United States of America. They took an oath to support and defend its Constitution against enemies, foreign or domestic. We believe it is the right of these Americans to express personal aspects of their lives, and in particular, aspects of their sexual orientation or gender identification. Furthermore, they should be allowed to do this in an environment free from harassment or discrimination in order to fulfill their potential to the fullest. Our members have worked as individuals or within cohesive units while serving our country in either war of peace. In doing so, we have accumulated distinguished records of military service that demonstrate our patriotism. We are active duty personnel, reservists, and veterans of the Armed Forces of the United States of America. In pursuit of common goals we proudly join together as the American Veterans for Equal Rights (AVER).
AVER wants YOU to get out and vote in November. We can't advocate for a particular politician, but we can exercise our right to vote!
This was a convention to remember. Feedback by members is this was the best AVER has held. Thank you all for your participation, especially the presenters and organizers.
