Openly Gay German Military Officer Baron Von Steuben
…hired by General George Washington (after Von Steuben was thrown out of the Prussian Army for being gay) to help GW win at Valley Forge and to train the Revolutionary Army.
…came to America with his gay partner with whom he stayed for his entire military career.
…wrote the Revolutionary War Drill Manual that was used to train the soldiers in the Revolutionary War and War of 1812.
…served as George Washington’s Chief of Staff.
Without gays in the military in the Revolutionary War, America might still be a British Colony.
Does John McCain know this?
