    At 90, Air Force veteran expelled in 1955 for being a lesbian gets her honorable discharge

    "In 1955, Airman Second Class Helen Grace James was targeted and investigated by Air Force officials for her sexuality, part of a massive effort to remove gay and lesbian service members known as the "Lavender Scare." James's attorney recently received word the Air Force Board for Correction of Military Records has agreed to change her status. "The Board has decided to upgrade Helen's discharge status to Honorable," James's attorney, J. Cacilia Kim, told The Washington Post."

    Say what you will about the Brit's...

    All surviving World War Two veterans are being offered the chance to return to where they served, and pay their respects to comrades, free of charge.

    "The project is being funded by the Treasury, which has committed over £5m raised through London inter-bank lending rate (Libor) fines. Veterans who avail of the tour will be accompanied by a medic - paid for by the scheme."
