H.E.R.O staged a sit-in today at Senator McCain's Phoenix, Tempe, Arizona office. This is the second sit-in by the group in less than a month. According to statement from the group:
Quarter Master 3rd Class (QM-3) Shellaine Gokey served her country proudly in the United States Navy for four years before she was discharged under Don't Ask, Don't Tell in 2001. Gokey states 'Don't ask Don't tell policy is not fair and is a hindrance for our military personnel. I was a good sailor and I loved being part of the Navy. I was dedicated, and if not expelled for my sexual orientation, I would likely have been a career sailor. The Navy loses some of its best and brightest every time DADT is brought to bear.'
