From SLDN.org - The Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (They are the ones who helped me legally challenge the policy of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. I have a docket number, but not sure when the decision will be issued. If not favorable, SLDN will help me in federal court up to the Supreme Court. Please support them!)
As the U.S. fights two wars, the military wants more recruits -- unless they are gay. "Ask Not" is a compelling documentary that reveals the human toll of those impacted by the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) law.
Watch this powerful film airing this week on your local PBS station. Check listings for air times in your area.
As the documentary illustrates, the human cost of DADT has been profound. Just look at one of the most recent casualties of the law: Lt. Col. Victor Fehrenbach, the F-15E aviator who has served 18 distinguished years and is about to lose his pension and his career.
Each of us can do our part to change hearts and minds. Get your friends and family to watch this touching story of hope and courage:
Your support is helping -- especially right now -- in the fight for repeal of DADT.
