DADT: Fourteen years older yet none the wiser

by Jeremy Hooper

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:

Some soldiers get honored with medal or purple hearts; others get a "sorry your inner truth got you booted" parade.  But hey -- gay beggars can't be choosers (despite what the "ex-gays" may tell you).

You can read more about the D.C. event at these links:
