This has to stop. Air Force spokesman Maj. Joel Harper
confirmed that 3 additional service members, 2 female
staff sergeants & a male 2nd lieutenant have been
approved for discharge under “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
Recently we reported that “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is
being delayed again by months or more. Defense
Secretary Gates reneged on his promise to sign the
certification before he retires June 30th. Instead it
will be coming from his successor Leon Panetta in
late July or early August. After it is certified there
is a 60 days waiting period before it takes effect.
Despite Obama signing the repeal of DADT it is
still unsafe for service members to come out until
60 days after certification.

It is rather shocking that we continue to see isolated incidents of gay servicemembers trying to force the Pentagon to let them out of their service obligations because the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' law still technically remains on the books. The Pentagon has made it abundantly clear that it does not want to enforce 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' any longer and that it is more than willing to deal with any lingering harassment issues through the chain of command or, in the case of command involvement, the base's or post's Inspector General's office. Thousands of servicemembers have dreamed of the day when 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' would be virtually dead and commands would plead with openly gay servicemembers to remain in the service. It really would behoove the Defense Department to expedite certification so that no one can use this archaic law as a loophole to leave the military early anymore.
