“Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” — In order to understand the issues and potential impacts associated with repeal of this law, the Secretary of Defense directed an outreach program to identify issues that should be considered in implementation planning. This outreach program includes an anonymous survey about the impact of a possible repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” law using a new online inbox. Soldiers and their families with active common access cards can offer their thoughts about how a repeal of the law that prohibits gays and lesbians from openly serving in the military might affect military readiness, effectiveness, unit cohesion, recruiting, retention and family readiness. Visit www.defense.gov/dadt to take the online survey.
