Hagel Statement From Longtime Friend, LGBT Community Leader And Military Expert

NEW YORK, Jan. 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Bill White , former President of the Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum and a nationally recognized leader in the military and veterans community – and well-known LGBT advocate – released the following statement on the nomination of his friend of over two decades, Senator Chuck Hagel:

"As someone who has known Senator Chuck Hagel as a friend and colleague for more than two decades, I know firsthand that he is an extraordinary ally and stalwart on behalf of our military personnel, veterans and their families. I know Chuck as someone who fully accepts, supports, and believes in the policies of President Obama and Vice President Biden regarding supporting Israel and denouncing the government of Iran.

"I know Chuck as a believer in that unbreakable bond shared between all service members, and in the basic equality of openly gay Americans serving in our military and repeal of DADT. Having dedicated my 20-plus year career to honoring, advocating and supporting our nation's troops, and as an openly gay man, I have complete confidence in President Obama's nomination of Senator Hagel as the right leader for our great country, and the mission of the Department of Defense. I am very much looking forward to working with Chuck to advance important efforts underway supporting our troops and their families."

Bill White served as president of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, the Intrepid Fallen Heroes Fund and the Intrepid Relief Fund. Under White's leadership, the museum emerged as a world-class education attraction welcoming almost 1,000,000 visitors. As President of the Intrepid family of foundations and lead director at their sister organizations, Bill led its fundraising totaling more than $600 million. Bill has dedicated his career to honoring, advocating and supporting our nation's military personnel, veterans and their families.
