In Memory of Chief Donovan

James P. DonovanChief Jim Donovan, former National President of American Veterans for Equal Rights, has died at the age of 74.  Chief Donovan served longer on AVER’s national board than almost any other officer.  Chief retired from the United States Navy with over 20 years of service.  His legacy is the right of LGBT patriots to serve in the United States Armed Forces, a freedom for which he fought for many years.  Fair winds and following seas Chief Donovan.  We love you.
