Recruiters Instructed to Accept Gay Recruits

Impressive even if only temporary.

The Department of Defense announced today that it is instructing military recruiters to accept enlistees who identify themselves as gay in order to comply with a court order to stop enforcing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

According to a spokeswoman, recruiters have been told to begin processing gay recruits, even if they acknowledge their sexual identity.

But they’re also being told to warn recruits that, if they say they’re gay, they could still face discharge if the order ending DADT is stayed, or a judge’s ruling that the policy is unconstitutional is overturned.

The real question is how long will this last and what happens to those people accepted if the practice is stopped?
