GAY SOLDIER KILLED IN AFGHANISTAN: “Kept Some People Calm When Things Got Rough”

In New Video, Bereaved Parents Talk about Corporal Andrew Wilfahrt, “A Soldier’s Soldier.”

As the military prepares to certify and implement repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy, OutServe, the underground network of over 2,900 active LGBT military personnel, and Courage Campaign, a 750,000 member progressive organizing network today released a new video from the parents of US Army Corporal Andrew Wilfahrt, a gay soldier killed in combat last month in Kandahar Province, Afghanistan.

In the video, which includes footage of Wilfahrt's remains returning to Dover Air Force Base, his parents describe what drove their son to join the military and how he was viewed by his peers and commanding officers.
