Although the Don't Ask Don't Tell” policy has been suppressed, though it remained to allow transgender people to serve openly in the American military. This will soon be the case according to the Pentagon.

Our conclusion is that allowing transgender personnel to serve openly is administratively feasible and will not be burdensome or complicated. Three months have passed since Defense Secretary Hagel announced a willingness to review the military's ban on transgender service, an effort the White House indicated it supports, says a report just published by Top Pentagon officials.

There are about 15,500 transgender people serving in the American armed forces.
