Serving With Integrity: Repealing “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”

Military Law Review

Vol. 203 2010

This article highlights research demonstrating that, despite fears and arguments to the contrary, America's military is well-suited to handle the integration of openly gay, lesbian and bisexual servicemembers and will successfully adapt to their inclusion. The author discusses the intersection of the so-called Defense of Marriage Act and "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and argues that DOMA does not preclude the repeal of DADT. The article also provides other counterarguments and information pertinent to the most common assertions made by "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" proponents. [PDF]
