Since ‘Don't Ask, Don't Tell' became law, over 11,000 servicemembers have been discharged because of their sexuality. The number of servicemembers who have left on their own volition, or have decided not to re-enlist because of this law is not documented. The government has spent over $363 million dollars in taxpayer money to implement this unfair legislation. Dozens of other countries, many of whom have fought side-by-side with our soldiers, allow lesbians, gays and bisexuals to serve openly. Those are the facts and they have nothing to do with a servicemembers passion and skill to perform his duty.
[..]Please help us by signing the petition to your Congressmember to lift the ban and support the Military Readiness Enhancement Act which will allow gays to volunteer to join the military.
