1975:

On this day US Air Force Tech Sergeant Leonard Matlovich, a decorated veteran of the Vietnam War, appeared in his Air Force uniform on the cover of Time magazine with the headline “I Am A Homosexual”. He was promptly given a general discharge. More recently, Lt. Dan Choi – a West Point Graduate, Arabic linguist, and Iraqi War veteran – was discharged under Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. – (Wiki / Affirmation / Army Times / South Florida Gay News)
