Doing Away with 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell'

Hosted by

The ban on gays and lesbians in the US military will come to an end as soon as Congressional requirements for repeal have been satisfied. One requirement is a mandatory one-hour training session, which is now being given to Marines at bases worldwide. Questions such as whether the new policy will conflict with one's religious beliefs are not uncommon, and trainers assure those who ask that "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" requires that they simply treat each other with mutual respect.
