Veterans Day: Thank You Naval ROTC Midshipman Todd Belok

Midshipman Todd Belok served less than six months before he was kicked out of the Naval Reserve Officers’ Training Corps (NROTC) at George Washington University for being gay in February 2009. Though the University has a strict nondiscrimination policy that includes sexual orientation, officials declined to pursue the NROTC’s clear discrimination because doing so could result in the withdrawal of all federal funding.


Midshipman Belok, thank you for serving your country.
