president-obama-signs-dadt-repeal

VICTORY!!!!!

We're ECSTATIC to report that President Barack Obama has officially signed the repeal of the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy, which meant that gay and lesbians were not allowed to serve in the military openly, and will become effective September 20th!

He says in a statement:

"As Commander in Chief, I have always been confident that our dedicated men and women in uniform would transition to a new policy in an orderly manner that preserves unit cohesion, recruitment, retention and military effectiveness… As of September 20th, service members will no longer be forced to hide who they are in order to serve our country. Our military will no longer be deprived of the talents and skills of patriotic Americans just because they happen to be gay or lesbian. I want to thank all our men and women in uniform, including those who are gay or lesbian, for their professionalism and patriotism during this transition. Every American can be proud that our extraordinary troops and their families, like earlier generations that have adapted to other changes, will only grow stronger and remain the best fighting force in the world and a reflection of the values of justice and equality that the define us as Americans."

We couldn't have said it better ourself!

Such a proud day for Americans! Now, let's keep the equal rights coming!

We can be strong! Ride, ride, pony, ride, ride!
