End "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy

Over 60,000 LGBT Americans risk their lives for the cause of freedom around the globe. Yet the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy does not allow these 60,000 American patriots to openly serve our country. With each officer, translator, fighter pilot, and Navy SEAL discharged, we lessen not just our moral character, but our military strength. "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" makes our country less safe and makes our serving LGBT citizens less free. It's time to end this policy.
