SUCH wonderful news!
Earlier this month, we were thrilled to hear that Don't Ask, Don't Tell was ruled as unconstitutional, and NOW we've learned that DADT will "formally disappear" in late September!!!
As a reminder, DADT
is was a ban on gays serving openly in the military.
Next, the military will need to figure out what benefits same-sex couple will receive, which sounds like it may be a bit of hurdle due to certain federal law blocks.
In the meanwhile, we're ecstatic that DADT will officially be a thing of the past in two months time! We're on our way, America!
EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL!
