DADT: Fourteen years older yet none the wiser
Beginning Friday, the 14th anniversary of the miltary's disturbingly short-sighted "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, the Human Rights Campaign, Servicemembers United, Log Cabin Republicans, Servicemembers Legal Defense Network and Liberty Education Forum will join forces to host a three-day tribute to the 12,000 who have been discharged under the discriminatory law. Here's an event video that's been put together by HRC:
