Dr. Doris Troth Lippman, professor of nursing, said of the effort to repeal 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell': "I think, if anything, wartime is probably one of the best times. You need to have everyone together and united and valuing every one of your fellow soldiers. When you're at war you depend on whoever's shooting next to you or in the tank with you to be somebody that you really feel will help you in any circumstances. I don't think most people who face death moment-to-moment are really thinking about whether the person standing next to them is lesbian or gay."

"The dean of Fairfield University contacted me and asked if I'd be interested in applying for a position that involved taking students through their mental health rotation at the VA Hospital in West Haven," said Doris Lippman, professor of nursing, and a veteran. "I applied for the position, and that was when I reconnected with the Vietnam vets, many of whom were suffering from PTSD. I was very upset when I saw them because I had kind of told myself that everyone who came home was doing okay, that's just how I dealt with it, but to see them suffering really affected me."
