Transexual US SF colonel discriminated against....

The former US SF Colonel

Her bio

Starting a new life and searching for a new career isn't easy, but Diane Schroer, a highly-decorated veteran, is no stranger to a challenge. Schroer was an Airborne Ranger qualified Special Forces officer who completed over 450 parachute jumps, received numerous decorations including the Defense Superior Service Medal, and was hand-picked to head up a classified national security operation. She began taking steps to transition from male to female shortly after retiring as a Colonel after 25 years of distinguished service in the Army.

What is it about sneaky beaky SF types that they end up this way? There was that 6ft+ one of Them a few years ago. Do they practice dressing up as women as part of covert ops and just get the taste?

You have to wonder why they didn't just join the RM in the first place

I know its just team bonding, Royal. Just joking

Whats the score with medals, when you were awarded them as a bloke, with one name, and then change to being classed as a woman with a different name?
Could it wear them, even though they were not its? in theory anyway.



I use the word "It" as personally I dont agree with all this sort of bollix.

Got one at my unit...just odd..very odd
God I'm glad the US Forces haven't gone down that road yet. :roll:

I can only imagine the impact to morale and unit cohesion when one's "it" Platoon Commander brings "it's" date to the Marine Corps Ball. :roll:
