Military Readiness Enhancement Act

According to the Open Congress website, this is what the Military Readiness Enhancement Act is all about:

Military Readiness Enhancement Act of 2007 - Repeals current Department of Defense (DOD) policy concerning homosexuality in the Armed Forces. Prohibits the [government] from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation against any member of the Armed Forces or any person seeking to become a member. Authorizes the re-accession into the Armed Forces of otherwise qualified individuals previously separated for homosexuality, bisexuality, or homosexual conduct. Requires such Secretaries to ensure that regulations governing the personal conduct of members of the Armed Forces are written and enforced without regard to sexual orientation.

Notice that it says "2007." This act was introduced on February 28, 2007, and still has not been voted on - this is why we need to write to our representatives and President Obama's administration. The bill to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" has been stuck in Congress for almost two years already, mostly because the Senators and Representatives don't see it as a priority. Make your voice heard! See the post below for information on how to contact your Senators and Representatives, to let them know that this policy needs to end as soon as possible.
