First Read – Dont Ask repeal — what next?


MSNBC Reports:  While the Don’t Ask – Don’t Tell law has been repealed by the U.S. Congress, it has yet to be signed into law by the president.  He has indicated that he would do so, as part of his campaign promises.  However, there are other hurdles before service members can server openly.  The Pentagon, and the President have to “certify” that the military is ready – which involves education, and possible facilities changes, etc.  It is expected that this process may take over a year.  Once the “certification” is in place, only then can service members serve openly for the first time in U.S. History.  It is also expected that since the Don’t Ask – Don’t Tell law is in judicial review by several courts – that the U.S. Military will not likey discharge any members – even during the “certification”period.
