Catching up with Margarethe Cammermeyer on the 10th anniversary of marriage equality in WA

Col. Margarethe Cammermeyer, a recipient of the Bronze Star as a combat-hospital nurse, was honorably discharged from the National Guard in 1992 because she is a lesbian. Still an activist, Cammermeyer says, “Complacency is what concerns me now. We need change agents! I tell people to become informed. Vote. Run for public office. Live your truth.” (Betty Udesen / The Seattle Times, 2000)
