Tonight we'll be discussing the controversial policy that prevents openly gay troops from serving in the U.S. military. In light of the newly published essay "The Efficacy of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell" by Colonel Om Prakash, we're talking to Dan Choi and Elaine Donnelly.
Dan Choi, a former Army lieutenant, is the founder of Knights Out, a group dedicated to repealing the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy. Visit the organization's website at http://www.knightsout.org/.
Elaine Donnelly is the founder and President of the Center for Military Readiness. She believes that there should be no gay members serving in the military. To read more about the Center for Military Readiness, go to http://cmrlink.org/.
