DADT is Repealed!!!

The Senate today voted today 65-31 to overturn "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and allow gays in the military. Obama is expected to sign the legislation into law sometime next week.

The law is a milestone for both the military and gay rights. The overturning of DADT is on par with Truman's 1947 executive order inegrating the military The United States joins countries like Israel, Canada, Australia, and the UK in allowing all citizens to join the military, regardless of sexual orientation.
