Today’s link is to my girlfriend’s new blog, and her post about the military, stop-loss, and Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.
I’ve always been connected to the military in one way or another; my dad was in the Navy, my brother in the Army, I have a good friend who is still in the Army now, and of course my partner is former Navy. We’ve talked about the possibility of her returning once the policy is repealed; it has its good and bad points, and we’ll certainly weigh them more deliberately when the time comes, but even the idea of it being an option is an indication of the fact that we, as a country, are finally making some great strides toward equality.
What are your thoughts? Share them here or there, or both!
