CDP LGBT Caucus Statement on "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Repeal

The repeal of "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" is a proud moment for all Americans but especially for gays and lesbians who are already serving in our nation’s armed forces across the globe. With the stroke of a pen, President Obama signed away decades of outdated and discriminatory policy that was also proving harmful to our national security. DADT’s repeal will mean that thousands of brave and honorable Americans will now be able to serve in our military without regard to sexual orientation.
