Lt. Dan Choi Speaks to CNN About Re-Enlistment After Pentagon Suspends DADT

Earlier last week, Lt. Dan Choi — who was discharged from the Navy under Don’t Ask Don’t Tell for coming out and living as an openly gay man — re-enlisted after a federal judge suspended DADT. It never made sense for the military to turn away Lt. Choi, who by any measure is a valuable and qualified candidate for service, based simply on his sexuality.

We should all applaud Lt. Choi for working tirelessly for the rights of LGBTQ servicemen, and hopefully he will again be able to pursue his dream to serve openly in this country’s military.
