AVER President Julz Carey,

Washington, D.C. Yesterday, American Veterans For Equal Rights (AVER) joined eight other U.S. veterans organizations on a powerful brief submitted to the U.S. District Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia in opposition to the proposed ban on military service by transgender individuals. The brief uses the direct words and experiences of veterans and current service members to demonstrate that allowing transgender troops to openly serve strengthens our military.
AVER President Julz Carey, a retired US Coast Guard Chief Boatswain’s Mate, was honored for service as one of the first women deployed on ships on active duty; demonstrating the viability of America’s armed forces’ uniquely diverse crews’ ability to work together as unified teams.? Chief Carey affirmed AVER’s commitment to Transgender service saying, “We will not consider DADT to be fully repealed until transgender patriots are accepted as equal members of the US Armed Forces. Our armed forces will never be inclusive if we are exclusive.”
The United Military Voices brief was filed by Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison LLP on behalf of TAVA along with the American Veterans Alliance, American Veterans for Equal Rights, Jewish War Veterans of the USA, Minority Veterans of America, Swords to Plowshares, Truman Center for National Policy, U.S. & Latin Veterans’ Support Embassy, and
The battle for our honor, our duty, our right to serve did not end with the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t tell.? As proud patriots who have served in our American armed forces, we will carry on demanding that every single able bodied volunteer may serve as who they are, with dignity and pride.
