Get Off My Ship: Ensign Berg Vs. the U.S. Navy
This is an account of Ensign Vernon E. Berg III's effort to claim his basic constitutional rights of due process which evolved into an ordeal and a judicial case that attracted international attention. The inordinate actions taken by the United States Navy against Ensign Berg provide a shameful record of abuse of power and covert maneuvers to effect a vindictive discharge of the first naval officer to challenge the U.S. Navy's policy of categorically excluding people who are homesexual.
