Did you know that over 13,5000 service members have been discharged from the millitary for being gay since the Don't ask don't tell program began in 1993? That's 13,500 people that were willing to die for their country being told "um, no thanks". I heard the # mentioned on NPR this morning and was shocked so I looked it up because yesterday someone in this group resonded to a post saying that this really never happens.Answer Question

Almost 11,000 troops have been dismissed under the 1993 law that allows gays to serve only if they don't reveal their sexual preference. Source: CNN
OP where did you get over 13,500?
