Our purpose is to promote the social health, welfare and communities of our members, who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transsexual men and women of color who are serving, or who have served honorably in one of the United States Armed Forces (Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guard). Our main objective is to develop our members into men and women who succeed in being honored and accepted into society for who they are personally and professionally – minority service members and veterans and as leaders in their communities. This objective is reinforced by continuous community participation in the communities that we serve, as well as continuous educational opportunities, as well as outreach to other community organizations who share our same goals. Secondly, we will provide and develop personal mentoring services for all of our members, providing development to each other, training our members to be a better member of society as a whole. As the “safe place” that members can go to and feel acceptance and comfort that someone else understands their lifestyles and needs, we will provide our members with the proper mindset to participate in society as proud LGBT service men and women.
Secret Operations Group is the only military-oriented group in the country that is specifically built for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) minority men and women of color in the United States Armed Forces. Since 2011, we have grown from a handful of “agents” in the Nation’s Capital, to over 1400+ active duty, veteran and retired military service from all four military services, each involved in a local chapter which organizes and supports the group’s broader mission in their local communities. Led by a dynamic team of active and veteran military service members, all whom have years of military leadership, and dedicated to the service of their fellow agents, we are dedicated not only to ourselves, but to our country as well.
