U.S. soldiers kicked out of army for being gay
Eleven soldiers received their marching orders from the U.S. Army in January for being gay.
The soldiers in infantry, intelligence, military police and medical-care were charged wth breaching the army’s policy that homosexual servicemembers not disclose their sexual preferences.
Democratic Representative Jim Moran of Virginia says he is getting monthly updates from the Pentagon on discharges related to the army’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, which President Obama says he will review.
President Jimmy Carter’s former Secretary of the Army, Clifford Alexander, issued a stinging rebuke Thursday of the military’s Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Policy when he called it a form of bigotry and an overall “inconsistent, foolish policy”: here.
