Once again decisions have been made on the global stage that outrightly discriminate against a group of people with little to no convincing reasoning.

It’s weak on a decision making level, unfair to those it immediately impacts, hurtful to those who hear it as an acknowledgement that they are ‘less than’ and disturbing to anyone with a sense of empathy for their fellow human.

Beck is not just your average service member. Born Christopher Beck, she served for 20 years in the Navy with SEAL Teams 1, 5, and eventually, the elite SEAL Team 6.
