Second Annual Combined Arms LGBTQ+ Veterans & Allies Military Ball
Military / Veterans, LGBTQIA+ / Pride
"Well done Combined Arms on always moving the needle forward for ALL veterans, military spouses, and allies. The past weekend was the Second Annual Combined Arms LGBTQ+ Veterans & Allies military ball.
It was an event to celebrate authenticity and the repeal of the flawed "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.
I had the privilege of honoring SSG Eric Alva, a highly decorate USMC who lost his leg in Iraq, and his husband, US Army SGT Danny Ingram. Their story is one of sacrifice, courage, and love despite all of the challenges that they've had to endure.
Thank you to our wonderfully witted and funny Emcee, Charlotte Clymer (US Army Veteran), to the Combine Arms team, especially to Brooks Ballard, for your leadership and magnificence, and to Tanna Harris, for the tremendous heavy lifting in making this event possible.
Thank you to Yasmin Wilkinson, bp, and all of our sponsors. Thank you to the Schlumberger team, our LGBTQ+ & Allies ERG for your support and for continuing the fight to make our organization and world more inclusive.
Most of all, thank you to all that served, especially those that had to do so in secret. It doesn't have to be a secret anymore. We celebrate and honor you!
