Don't Ask, Don't Tell: A Social Policy Analysis
Jeanne, James, Johanna, & Dane http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/special/politics/dont-ask-dont-tell-timeline/ Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1994, known as the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, Don’t Pursue” (DADT) policy (10 U.S.C. 654). Admiral Michael Mullen, chairman
of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said, “It is my personal belief that allowing
gays and lesbians to serve openly would be the right thing to do.” In 1778, Lieutenant Gotthold Frederick Enslin became the first soldier to be drummed out of the Continental Army for sodomy In 1944, a policy directive ordered that homosexuals were to be committed to military hospitals, examined by psychiatrists and discharged Ambiguity Costs Women Unit Cohesion Discrimination Senate passed the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal Act of 2010” (S.4023, H.R. 2965) in December of 2010 which repealed 10 U.S.C. 654. The repeal included the following necessary objectives in order to repeal the DADT policy:
Military readiness
Leadership and training on new policies
Changes to policies, and
Continuing ways to monitor the workforce climate on implementation The repeal was stated to take effect 60 days after the President, the Secretary of defense, and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff have considered the recommendations and the Department of Defense has prepared the necessary policies.

Recommendation One: Recognition of the significant achievement this policy represents Recommendation Two: A strong reaffirmation of the policy by the President, Congress and Military Branches with an emphasis on zero tolerance Recommendation Three: Viable and robust accountability structures Recommendation Four: A Re-admittance policy for Gay service members Recommendation Five: An incremental approach to addressing lingering policy concerns to keep pace with policy changes in the wider American culture.
