United States Military's Don't Ask Don't Tell policy


By amberD - Posted on 22 September 2011

I just read in the news that the United States Military's Don't Ask Don't Tell policy is something of the past. The policy ended as of 12:01 a.m. on Tues, September 20. Gays and lesbians in the United States military are now able to function publicly. The Department of Defense made it clear that it will have no tolerance for anti-gay activity. The almost 14,000 gays who were released during the 18-year-long policy are now being asked to reenlist. But there are several more difficulties facing GLBT Americans.

All I can say is good luck to you folks, and congratulations for a new life..:)

Hi Amber. The rumors are true. DADT is ancient history. Amazing to think that there was a time when we prevented Americans from defending us, just because of their sexuality. 

I predict this will lead to a stronger, more unified military.

...including Arabic translators in the wake of Sept. 11, 2001.
