Admirals, Generals Urge DADT Repeal

Listen to this article

A former Army secretary and 103 retired admirals and generals issued a call Nov. 17 for repeal of the military’s “don't ask, don't tell” ban on gays serving openly.

Among the document’s signers were a former Naval Academy superintendent, retired four-star Adm. Charles Larson, and former President Jimmy Carter’s Army secretary, Clifford Alexander.

It is believed that there are about 65,000 gay people serving in the military, not counting the 627 who were kicked out last year for failing to stay sufficiently closeted.
