DADT Repeal: One Year Later

It’s been a  year since President Obama officially signed the repeal of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and guess what? The world hasn’t ended. Terrorists haven’t taken over America. Soldiers aren’t being harassed in the showers. Battle-ready effectiveness hasn’t decreased.

In fact, as reported by ThinkProgress, “leaders who opposed the change are embracing it and gay servicemembers are reporting acceptance within the ranks.”

It seems that many politicians and nay-sayers didn’t have faith in the men and women who serve our country. I guess they incorrectly assumed that our soldiers were just as bigoted as they were. Epic fail for them!

NBC Nightly News also did a piece on the DADT repeal last night. Based on the video, I say our soldiers are thriving.
