Overview

VIETNAM VETERAN.RECIPIENT OF THE BRONZE STAR.MOTHER OF FOUR.VA. NURSE OF THE YEARDISCHARGED. In 1989, during a routine interview for top-secret security clearance, U.S Army Colonel Margarethe Cammermeyer revealed that she was a lesbian-and began an ordeal that continues to this day. Despite her distinguished twenty-six-year military career, she was discharged from the U.S. Army. Her dismissal has garnered intense media coverage and stirred debate all the way to the presidency. In this revealing autobiography Cammermeyer writes of her decision to challenge the official policy on homosexuals in the military and of her recent victory in Federal District Court. But much more than a book laws and politics, Serving in Silence is about coming of age, being a mother, and finding one's center; about "coming out," the daily horrors of nursing in Vietnam, and a female soldier's brave life. THE BOOK THAT INSPIRED THE TELEVISION MOVIE
