Veterans Separated Under "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Get Unexpected News

Veterans Separated Under “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Get Unexpected News

Things were so much more simple when the United States military followed nature the way God made it. There was no asking or telling. If someone was same-sex attracted, out they went.

That all changed with the Clinton Administration when “don’t ask, don’t tell” became the policy of the Department of Defense.

In the intervening years, a number of service members were dishonorably discharged for violating that rule or coming up HIV positive. Now, in the Biden year(s), the Veterans Administration will be reviewing these discharges on a case by case basis to determine if the veterans are eligible for federal benefits.

The announcement, issued Monday on the 10th anniversary of the repeal of don’t ask, don’t tell, will apply to veterans who were forced from service under the policy and given “other than honorable discharges” due to their sexual orientation, gender identity, or HIV status.

The guidance was detailed in a blog post on the VA’s website by Kayla Williams, assistant secretary for public affairs in the department’s Office of Public and Intergovernmental Affairs. It provides LGBTQ veterans the opportunity to receive assistance, ranging from mental health care and disability benefits to college money and home loans.

The announcement clarifies the existing rules in place but does not represent a specific legal change, officials said.

“At VA, we continuously work not only to meet the needs of LGBTQ+ Veterans, but also to address ongoing issues that LGBTQ+ Veterans face as a result of the military’s decades-long official policy of homophobia and transphobia,” Williams wrote.

Never mind that these people truly may not have been fit to serve in combat for whatever reason. Those are the people who have first priority in American minds, not the ones with psychological disorders even if the psychiatric community does not consider them sick any longer.

There simply aren’t words for what the Biden camp is doing to this country.
