Reid Applauds Repeal Of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”

Washington, D.C. — Nevada Senator Harry Reid issued the following statement today after the Pentagon officially ended the policy known as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”:

“Today marks the end of a shameful and counterproductive policy that needlessly destroyed careers and harmed our military readiness. Thousands of qualified men and women who want to serve our country will now be able to do so without fearing their careers could end due to their sexual orientation. Our Armed Forces will be stronger because now our military commanders and our nation can be sure we will have the best and brightest service members on the job, regardless of ethnicity, creed, or sexual orientation.”
