"Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is a shameful policy that forces patriotic Americans to hide who they are in order to put their lives on the line to defend our country. Highly trained and qualified service members who are found out to be gays or lesbians are discharged, making our country less safe. It's time to make sure our military's policy reflects our constitutional values. It's a question of fundamental fairness and equality.
Tell YOUR representative that you expect him or her to vote for the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
