On Match 18, APA’s PI-GRO provided written testimony in favor of repealing the U.S. Military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy for a U.S. Senate hearing. The hearing focused on the effects the ban has had on the America’s armed forces and the potential impact of rescinding the current policy. APA’s testimony highlighted the strong evidence that indicates there is no disruption or loss of mission effectiveness when members of a military are allowed to serve openly regarding their sexual orientation.
