Look at this video and what it has to say, and tell me why there is still people out there who want this policy to stay?
"If this person got outed, they would lose their pension, their retirement benefits -- their 20 years of service in the military would be gone," he said.
Sheng asked many of those he photographed why they continue to serve despite the inequality.
"I asked, 'Why do you still serve with this policy in place? Why would you do it?' " Sheng said. "And they all looked at me and said, 'Because it's serving the country. It's the most honorable thing that I can think of doing right now in my life.' "
Amazing, isn't it, that they would serve, wanting to preserve freedoms and rights that they don't have themselves.

I think it's going to be overturned, hopefully by the end of this year. If not it will be another cave in disappointment for me. It's sad it has taken this long.
