After 20 years in the U.S. Army, I was forced to retire due to the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy that forbids gay men and women from serving openly in the US Military.
At the HRC (Human Rights Campaign) Equality Ball at the Mayflower Hotel, those of us who have been a vocal force against this damaging and unconstitutional policy are quite confident that our new Commander-in-Chief President Barack Obama will sign an Executive Order to abolish the “DADT” policy. Yes We Can!
Michael Patrick McManus, Lieutenant Colonel, US Army, Retired
And, more with shifting retirement dates. Don’t you just love a blog swarm?
While stationed in Frankfurt, Germany in 1986, then-Sergeant McManus served as Then-General Colin Powell’s personal bodyguard and interpreter; Sergeant McManus came out of the closet as a gay man in 1993 at a Memorial Weekend Requiem in San Francisco honoring the Unknown Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual Soldiers
U.S. Army Captain Michael McManus revealed that General Colin Powell knew he was gay while McManus was serving as his personal bodyguard, and that it made no difference to the general. While stationed in Frankfurt, Germany in 1986, then Sergeant McManus served as Powell’s bodyguard and interpreter, and it was during that time that Sgt. McManus “came out” to him, confiding to him that he was gay.
According to McManus, Gen. Powell, who was at that time the commander of the U.S. Army Fifth Corps, replied, “What do you want me to do about it? As long as youare doing your job well, that does not matter to me. And you are doing an excellent job.”
Capt. McManus came out of the closet as a gay man publicly on Saturday May 29, 1993 at a Memorial Weekend Requiem in San Francisco honoring the Unknown Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual Soldiers. The event was sponsored by the San Francisco Area chapter of the GLAAD and endorsed by many organizations, including the Alexander Hamilton Post of the American Legion.
McManus chose the San Francisco requiem event as the time to come out publicly because he “can no longer be a part of an organization that promotes and supports such blatant discrimination. It is time for people to realize that sexual orientation is a fundamental part of a person’s identity, just as being Asian or African-American.”
Capt. McManus [in 1993] planned on being vocal about the military’s gay and lesbian ban. He served in the U.S. Army Reserves and holds a top secret security clearance. Still fighting the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, Michael retired from the US Army in Feb. 2008 at the rank of LTC (Lieutenant Colonel).
We have received information from the office of HH Dalai Lama that Tenzin Chophak ( Michael Mc Manus) did not have an Audience with His Holiness Dalai Lama on Oct.14 ’99, at which he said he had received the Tsogyal Dzambala Practice, to benefit Land of Medicine Buddha..
While at LMB we gave Tenzin Chophak more than adequate opportunity to improve his work perfomance and in no way was he mistreated.
