But, when she applied for the promotion, she had to go through a security clearance. During the interview for that clearance, she admitted that she was a lesbian. Her life forever changed. Ultimately, the army took away her rank and discharged her, despite her over twenty years of spotless service to her country. This book ended in when she had just won her district court decision. I will now look to see how it turned out after that. I actually heard her speak soon after the book was published in She was a woman who served with distinction and was treated very unfairly.

I thought the book was very well written, and while emotions showed, it was not an overly emotional book. It was factual and told of Cammermeyer's devotion to her field of study, the United States military, and to her family. Discrimination does not help any one of us, and yet it still exists. Prejudicial remarks are cutting and hateful. Unfortunately, the people who really need to read this book most likely never will because they are already certain they are correct and that gays and lesbians I thought the book was very well written, and while emotions showed, it was not an overly emotional book.

Unfortunately, the people who really need to read this book most likely never will because they are already certain they are correct and that gays and lesbians should not serve in the military. Imagine their surprise if they knew how many already do serve, and serve with honor and dignity. May 15, Erica rated it liked it Shelves: I missed the chance to hear Grethe Cammermeyer speak at a fundraiser for the Lesbian Archives in Seattle, so I thought I would read the book instead. I expected the book to be entirely about her attempt at overturning the military's homophobic policy or refusing to let gays and lesbians serve, but it was actually a complete biography, starting with her childhood during WWII.

Her realization that she was gay, and her attempts to keep her military career all happened in the last few chapters of the book.
Because of this, or perhaps because the book was published over ten years ago, I was left wanting more. I really wish I had gotten to hear her speak. After seeing the movie starring Glenn Close, I wanted to read this book to fill in the details of the life of this brave woman. There was a lot more detail on her time in Vietnam and her work with her husband on building up their land and house.
The standards and morals of Grethe Cammermeyer are inspirational.
Back in the Day: Serving in Silence

The book is not polished in its writing style, but is organized for easy reading and gives an inside view of those who have served in silence and one whose honor would not let her back down.
I am impressed with Cammermeyer's honesty as she chronicles her own journey from someone who thought like the majority of Americans in her age cohort when it came to homosexuality, to someone who's an out and proud lesbian. The thread of her integrity runs through the entire book. I find the way in which she has chosen to tell her story very valuable; her story is accessible to folks from many backgrounds and ways of thinking.
She's definitely not just "preaching to the choir. Jan 16, Breeze rated it really liked it Shelves: Grethe Cammermeyer was a colleague and mentor to me.
I knew she was going through hard times but I never knew the details; I am glad she has found her way to personal happiness. She is one tough cookie and she is totally forthright and honest with no holds barred on describing her search for self. I realized it was going to be a rather slow read anyway. Even though I was not able to make it through the autobiography, I think Cammermeyer's story is compelling and very important. Jul 19, Laura rated it really liked it. I love when an author can help me understand what it's like to be them.
I love it even more when what I thought I knew is changed. This is a good book. Sad to see such injustice but happy for her victories. Interesting read and great chance to learn. My copy has minimal highlighting on a few pages.
