But not this one.
The death of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell remains one of the cheeriest pieces of news of the year. It’s easy to forget that, especially for those of us who weren’t directly affected by the policy one way or the other. But what a difference its repeal made to thousands of couples just like Petty Officer 2nd Class Marissa Gaet and Petty Officer 3rd Class Citlalic Snell. My love and best wishes to them all.
