What would be the impact of repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell?

Exploring the impact of repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT), the law barring openly gay soldiers from serving in the military, was passed in 1993. On December 22, 2010, President Obama signed legislation that led to its repeal.

Prior to the repeal, the Department of Defense (DoD) studied the impact of repealing DADT on military recruitment, retention, effectiveness, and unit cohesion.

DoD contracted with Westat to assess the perceptions of military personnel and their spouses concerning recruitment, retention, effectiveness, and unit cohesion.
