Statement on Don't Ask, Don't Tell Injunction


Location: Washington, DC

"Today, a federal appeals court issued a historic order blocking the U.S. military from enforcing its discriminatory "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy on gays and lesbians serving in the military. This injunction finally eviscerates the last remnants of a discriminatory, dishonorable policy that will soon be off the books for good. For too long, Don't Ask, Don't Tell has forced Americans to lie about who they are in order to serve their country. Beginning today, that will no longer be the case.

"I commend President Obama for his steadfast commitment to ending Don't Ask, Don't Tell, as well as my House and Senate colleagues who have resolutely stood together to ensure that our service members no longer have to choose between serving their country and living an authentic life. To all of those in our Armed Forces who have had to hide their true identities, thank you for your service to our country. Today, we stand for you as you have stood for America--unwaveringly, and with the utmost pride and respect."
