After Fighting 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell,' Lt. Choi is Discharged from Army

Friday, July 23, 2010

Lt. Dan Choi came out as gay on "The Rachel Maddow Show" over a year ago and has since become the face of the movement against the military's "don't ask, don't tell." policy. Lt. Choi was honorably discharged yesterday for protesting the policy. He had attended West Point and had hoped to have a career in the army.

There is some movement in Washington to repeal the policy, with Congress due to vote on the issue and the Pentagon studying the effects of a repeal. Lt. Choi tells The Takeaway that if the policy is repealed, he would definitely rejoin.
