Don't Ask, But Do Tell

Massachusetts Congressman Marty Meehan (D) is set to introduce a bill to allow gays and lesbians to serve openly in the military and eliminate the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy.  To date, over 11,000 American soldiers have been dismissed as a result of the policy.  Meehan introduced the legislation last session under the Republican-led Congress and received support from over 120 members.

 

 Clearly, support from 120 is not enough to pass the legislation.  However, there are many more Democrats in the House of Representatives this time around.  Also, the military is in dire need of more personnel, so more lawmakers may sign onto the bill.  Some of the soldiers that have been discharged are fluent in Arabic and hundreds of others are in critical positions. 

 

All things considered, it would be a very good idea to get rid of this discriminatory policy and allow everyone to serve.  The U.S. military is fighting two wars and could be involved in another (Iran) in the not too distant future.  They need all the help they can get.  They should not even consider the sexual preference of the person.  It is irrelevant.
