Democratic Congressman Alcee Hastings took to the House floor to honor former U.S. Navy Seal, Kristen Beck, or better known to others as, Christopher Beck.
Beck is the post-operative transgender, former Seal who outed herself in 2013, and has written a book, Warrior Princess, in which she opens up about his transformation.
“I commend Kristin Beck for her outstanding bravery and service to our nation,” the Florida Democrat said on the House floor, according to the Congressional record. “All her life, she has selflessly put duty and country ahead of her own needs.”
“Kristin’s story reminds us of the many daily struggles faced by transgender Americans and veterans alike, including the continued discrimination faced by transgender service members who must hide their identities in order to serve in the military,” Hastings said. “As she continues working to advance lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) equality and address the needs of veterans, I remain an ally in Congress and wish her the very best in her new life’s mission.”-Raw Story

If only President Obama had half of the stones she had.
