Former Captain Jonathan Hopkins (West Point ’01) was #4 in his West Point class. He was selected early as a Major and earned 3 bronze stars. He was also discharged last week under DADT. 

Presented by Knights Out (West Point’s LGBT alumni & allies) and Yale GALA with co-hosts FFR/Princeton BTGALA, Penn GALA, CUGALA (Cornell GALA), HGLC (Harvard Gay & Lesbian Caucus) & DGALA  (Dartmouth).
