I wholeheartedly agree. What Chelsea/Bradley did for this country took bravery and guts. If there is no medal for her, her heart will be her medal.

Among those touting “I AM Bradley Manning,” I saw little reason to abandon my support for him because he now wishes to publicly acknowledge gender identity issues, and assume the outward persona of a woman. In fact, I can only assume she’s one hell of a tough gal – who’s inner strength of conviction has stood her in good stead. Especially as she’s managed to hold her head up – and hold it all together – while awaiting sentencing on her conviction for espionage.
