The service man who was booed during a Republican primary debate has become an outspoken advocate for LGBT rights and is now calling for marriage equality in the military. "The late '50s, they stopped segregation in the Army for African-Americans, the late '60s, interracial marriage was allowed, it was unconstitutional to make it illegal and here we are half a century forward and Josh and I's marriage is not recognized," said Major Stephen Snyder-Hill while on The Young Turks on Current TV on Wednesday. "Just following the natural progression of civil rights, that's what we are asking for as well."
