A DADT Website Was Created

Written by

In its training to repeal the 'Don't ask, Don't tell' policy, American army created a website.

We can read on the siteWe can read on the site: "Since 1993, the law and policy known as "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) has provided that homosexual conduct is a bar to service in the Armed Forces. On Dec. 22, 2010, the DADT Repeal Act of 2010 became law. It provides for the repeal of DADT to be effective 60 days after the President, the Secretary of Defense, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff certify to Congress that the Armed Forces are prepared to implement repeal. The Army began educating Army personnel on the process and policies associated with the repeal of DADT on Feb. 17, 2011, in order to prepare the force for implementation. Until 60 days after certification, the law commonly known as "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" remains in effect, and the Department of Defense will continue to apply the law as it is obligated to do."

In spite of the recently voted law giving to the army chiefs the choice to decide when the troops will be ready to accept out gays and lesbians, it seems the army advances towards this repeal as planned.
