Gay National Guard Surgeon Introduces Obama At L.A. Fundraiser

I kept [the existence of my husband and two sons] secret because that’s what the law required. But not anymore. I didn’t talk about myself to my patients but in my heart I know that not a one of them would have cared if I were gay or straight.  I always knew that some day the values that make our country great would endure, and so they have. This is a president who has challenged every one of us to expand our imagination of the possible…

He has made clear that we are not a nation that says ‘don’t ask, don’t tell.’ We are a nation that says ‘out of many, we are one.’”

Dr. Vito Imbasciani, a colonel in the Army National Guard and Chief Medical Officer for the California State National Guard with 26 years of service, introducing President Obama at a Beverly Hills fundraiser.
