Thank Goddess this man is president.
The ban on gays serving openly in the U.S. military will end in 60 days, President Barack Obama said on Friday after notifying Congress that all the requirements to repeal it have been met.
The armed forces are ready to set aside the 18-year-old “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy that forced gay recruits to keep their sexual orientation secret, Obama said in a statement.
“As of September 20th, service members will no longer be forced to hide who they are in order to serve our country. Our military will no longer be deprived of the talents and skills of patriotic Americans just because they happen to be gay or lesbian,” he said.
How ’bout them
