Most Troops OK With Ending “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell”
Most U.S. troops and their families believe the policy of “don’t ask don’t tell” should be dropped and don’t object to gays serving openly.
In July, the Pentagon sent a survey with dozens of questions to 400,000 active-duty and reserve troops. It asked whether they had ever shared a room or the showers with gay peers, and how they might act if a gay service member lived with a same-sex partner on base.
Military officials did not say how many troops completed the survey, but at least 103,000 had done so just days before it was due, according to the Pentagon. A similar survey was later sent to military spouses.Click here for reuse options!
