Congressman Jared Polis (D-CO) released the following statement on the end of the discriminatory ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy, which was officially repealed today.
“The repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell is a victory for the cause of equality and our national defense. For too long, this wrongheaded policy prevented brave Americans from serving in our military and defending our country just because of who they love.
