With the DADT issue heating up both in the courts and in the senate this week, I was pointed to this article in the New Republic written by a current active duty soldier. A quote from the article:
Right now, I feel as if I’m in a state of limbo. Normally people who are personally and professionally affected by a law have a right to stand against it publicly—to speak out, to petition government, to organize and try to influence political decision-makers. But DADT is the one policy that prevents the affected from lobbying openly against it. It mandates my silence.
That's just wrong.
Read the article. Then call your senators and urge them to support repeal of DADT.
You can call the US Capitol Switchboard at (202)224-3121 and they can connect you with your Senator's office.
The New York Times has put up a series of 7 letters from current active and inactive military service members regarding DADT. Worth the read.
