It's been a monumental day with the hopefully permanent ending of DADT! TIME TO CELEBRATE!! Its been a long road to end the oppression and segregation instilled by the armed forces but it looks like today might have been the tipping point.
The US Dept of Justice has 60 days to file an appeal to the decision that was made to end DADT and immediately discontinue any discharging procedures by US District Judge Victoria Phillips. It is unlikely that the government will step in and appeal this decision but only time will tell. Until then we will wait and see and cross our fingers.
GLBTA groups can finally celebrate all the hard work they have done to gain support for the end of DADT!! I think we all can celebrate!!
"Don't ask, don't tell, as of today at least, is done, and the government is going to have to do something now to resurrect it. This is an extremely significant, historic decision. Once and for all, this failed policy is stopped. Fortunately now we hope all Americans who wish to serve their country can." Says Dan Woods, the lawyer representing the Log Cabin Republicans in their lawsuit to end the oppression of DADT.
