Lt. Col. Victor Fehrenbach Stands Up For Trevor

Categories:

2,180 -- that's how many hours I have spent in the cockpit, over the course of 88 combat missions, serving the Air Force and nation that I love.

Victor FehrenbachMy fighter jet took missile and artillery fire dozens of times. I was awarded with nine Air Medals, including one for Heroism for stopping Iraqi tanks from advancing on a U.S. convoy. Every day I risked my life for my country.

Then I was outed for being gay, and everything changed. I was thrown on desk duty and placed under investigation because of who I am.  I watched moms and dads, sons and daughters, and my friends go back for the third, fourth, fifth deployment, when I was ready, willing, and eager to go return to combat.

That's when I met Trevor Thomas -- a guy from Grand Rapids, Michigan.

I first met Trevor when I was at Mountain Home Air Force Base in the middle-of-nowhere Idaho when Trevor was directing the communications for a legal defense team that was representing me and my suit in federal court to stop the government from firing me. It worked. 14,000 men and women weren’t so lucky.

I owe so much of it to Trevor, for getting my story told in The New York Times and The Washington Post and on every major network you can name.  It was because of Trevor's determination and persistence to not just stand up for me, but for thousands silenced under the discriminatory law of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”

Now, Trevor is running for Congress in Michigan’s 3rd District. I don’t follow a lot of Congressional races, but like so many people, I am fed up with nothing getting done. I don’t feel like they are speaking for me. So, I asked Trevor last night what he needed to win -- it's simple, he said: "I need to hit my $30,000 goal to get my message out against my millionaire opponents." 

Today, I'm asking you to stand up for Trevor just as he stood up for me.

Will you give $20, $35, or $100 toward his goal? 

Trevor was key in passing the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." And he did it by building bipartisan support from dozens of GOP members of the U.S. House and Senate -- that doesn't seem to happen anymore. 

But maybe with Trevor back in Washington, we can get back there, as a nation.

Sincerely,

Lt. Col. Victor J. Fehrenbach
U.S. Air Force (Ret.)
