DADT Update

We'll be watching.
After determining there isn't sufficient support for her "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" amendment, Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand is now settling for a hearing on the issue by the Armed Services Committee this fall.

"This policy is wrong for our national security and wrong for the moral foundation upon which our country was founded,’” Gillibrand said in a press release.

“I thank Chairman Levin for agreeing to hold this important hearing. Numerous military leaders are telling us that the times have changed. ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ is an unfair, outdated measure that violates the civil rights of some of our bravest, most heroic men and women. By repealing this policy, we will increase America’s strength - both militarily and morally."
