Wasserman Schultz Statement on Five Year Anniversary of the End of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

 U.S. Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (FL-23) issued the following statement in commemoration of the fifth anniversary of the repeal of the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy in the United States military:

“Today we celebrate the fifth anniversary of the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" and its impact on our courageous women and men currently serving in the armed forces, and every young person who wishes to serve their country in uniform.

“The repeal of this policy was a major milestone to ensuring no one is denied an opportunity to serve in our armed forces because of their sexual orientation. We hope that all young people aspire to a career that helps enrich our nation, including serving in our armed forces. 

“Today we celebrate our active duty military members, veterans, LGBT sisters and brothers, and our children, who will grow up in a nation more inclusive and free for all of her people.”
