Seven gay, high-ranking officers demand apology from Gen. Peter Pace

The key to all of this is the statement the retired officers made in response to Gen. Peter Pace's claim that they/we are "immoral" for being gay:
"Does General Pace believe we are immoral, or that our service was unacceptable? Does he appreciate the sacrifice and dedication of every patriot in our armed forces, regardless of their sexual orientation? As military leaders, we never discounted the enormous contribution that every service member brought to our armed forces. General Pace should do no less, and owes an apology to our men and women on the frontlines and their families."

The Servicemembers Legal Defense Network has their statement and bios.
