Transgender Veterans March to the Wall a Huge Success

The Transgender Veterans March to the Wall, sponsored by the Transgender American Veterans Association (TAVA), turned out to be a greater success than the planners hoped for. Fifty transgender veterans attended in Washington, DC, many getting their first chance to face the Vietnam Memorial and the friends they lost in that war. Others came because they felt a need to meet with other transgender veterans, to feel close to others who had the same experiences as they did in the military. Attending were veterans from WWII, Korean War, Vietnam War, the first Gulf War, and all the peace times in between. Ages ranged from 77 to 27 years old.
