U.S. Military Accepts Gay and Lesbian Recruits

Last week, a federal judge ordered the military to stop enforcing the 1993 law banning openly gay service members. For the first time in the United States history, the military is accepting recruits who are openly gay. The order comes down from the top branch to recruiting offices in the aftermath of a court order striking down “don’t ask, don’t tell.” But it comes even as the military tries to block the court’s action. Recruiters also have been told to inform potential recruits that the moratorium could be reversed at any point. So recruiters are being told to advise openly-gay applicants that they may not be welcome for long. The Justice Department is appealing the decision and has asked for a temporary stay.
