This program is airing right now in my area (Eatern Standard Time).

Brian Lewis spoke, representing the male viewpoint. He is an administrator of Men Thriving.

Lewis said he was later misdiagnosed with having a personality disorder and he was discharged from the service in 2001.

"I carry my discharge as an official and permanent symbol of shame, on top of the trauma of the physical attack, the retaliation and its aftermath," Lewis said.
