The Army has launched a new website in anticipation of the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. The site “features current news articles, key facts, frequently asked questions and additional resources” and updates on the progress made toward lifting the ban. Interestingly, one article about repeal training notes that “only one chaplain of the 2,900 in the Army asked to leave the service due to pending repeal of the law” — undermining claims by proponents of the policy who predicted a “mass exodus” of Christian chaplains if the policy were repealed. Check out the site here:
President Obama signed repeal legislation in December, but the policy will remain in place until 60 days after the president, defense secretary, and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff certify that repeal will not undermine military readiness and effectiveness.
