Republican Party-Building in Massachusetts
Here's how the Massachusetts Federation of Young Republicans can best Support Our Troops:
Help Get Rid of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell!"
In Boston, the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network is challenging the policy in Cook et al. v. Rumsfeld et al., now in the First Circuit Court of Appeals. Despite the clear need, our military continues to fire otherwise well qualified gay and lesbian Arabic linguists. Hel-lo!
Even the Pentagon has stopped defending the policy, and now refers all inquiries and comments to Congress.
If the Massachusetts Federation of Young Republicans are unable to volunteer (and their Vice Chairman Patrick told us he applied and was not accepted; We Thank Him for Stepping Forward), at least they can support repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
It's not like anybody they know will have to share a shower in basic training.
Remember, the Massachusetts Federation of Young Republicans event is Saturday, December 9.
