DADT is done

Yesterday marked the end of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, the 18-year-old policy that prohibited gays and lesbians from openly serving in the military and forced more than 14,000 qualified men and women out of the armed forces. This is great news for all sorts of self-evident reasons, the most important one being that it makes Yehuda Levin cry.

As the president put it when he signed the executive order the ordered the military to end the policy: "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"

Those of you concerned that the repeal of DADT will hurt morale and hinder effectiveness are referred to this Daily Show segment:
