I recently signed the Courage Campaign’s petition to encourage President Obama not to fire talented military members such as Lt. Choi and to end the policy of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. I encourage my readers to visit their website to find out more on the issue. Over 104,000 people signed it as of May 18th.
Dear President Barack Obama,
The time has come to end discrimination in our armed forces. We, the undersigned, ask you to stop the discharge of Lt. Dan Choi and any other soldier as a result of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. We ask that you uphold your pledge and push Congress to quickly put a bill on your desk to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.”
