Military recruiters told to accept gay applicants
Military recruiters told to accept gay applicants - Yahoo! News
WASHINGTON – A Pentagon spokeswoman says recruiters have been told that they must accept gay applicants, following a federal court decision striking down the ban on gays serving openly in the military.
Spokeswoman Cynthia Smith said Tuesday that top-level guidance has been issued to recruiting commands informing them that the military's "don't ask, don't tell" rule has been suspended for now. Recruiters also have been told to inform potential recruits that the moratorium could be reversed at any point.
I think at this point it's over. It's sad to see that it took a judges order instead of giving the military time to prepare for the change.
