WASHINGTON D.C. (Worthy News)-- Gay military service personnel may now serve openly, and now former top Pentagon officials believe that another group should be afforded the same treatment: transgendered Americans, the Washington Times reported.

A report issued Tuesday by retired Maj. Gen. Gale S. Pollock, former acting surgeon general of the Army; Brig. Gen. Clara Adams-Ender, former chief of the U.S. Army Nurse Corps; and Brig. Gen. Thomas A. Kolditz, a Yale University professor and professor emeritus at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, opened the door for ending a de-facto "don't ask, don't tell" policy for transgendered individuals, the Washington Examiner reported.

"Our conclusion is that allowing transgender personnel to serve openly is administratively feasible and will not be burdensome or complicated. Three months have passed since Defense Secretary Hagel announced a willingness to review the military's ban on transgender service, an effort the White House indicated it supports," the 29-page report said. -- Source

  1. The White House supports it. That's nothing new, the White House supports anything...Name it and claim it. It's the WH feel good gospel. Who cares if it's right or wrong anymore. It's all about Pride, power, money, lust, and anything immoral.
