Gay activist Lt. Dan Choi hospitalized after suffering mental breakdown

Lt. Dan Choi, the openly gay Army veteran who has been an outspoken critic of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy, has been hospitalized after suffering a mental breakdown, he told colleagues.

"I was involuntarily committed to the Brockton MA Veterans Hospital Psychiatric Ward on Friday Morning after experiencing a breakdown and anxiety attack," Choi wrote in an e-mail Tuesday to Pam Spaulding and Rex Wockner, who blog about gay and lesbian issues.

On her blog, Pam's House Blend, Spaulding shared the contents of Choi's e-mail, in which the Iraq war vet expressed disappointment at the failure by Congress to repeal the 17-year-old ban on openly gay troops in the military. (Continues here)
