Let the Military Move When Ready


70% of the military and 57 Senators (representing probably at least 70% of the nation) favor repealing the military's costly policy on gay servicemen and women, who contribute to our nation's security, daily.

We've been at it for 17 years, and intensively for ten months this year.
