"Don't Ask, Don't Tell," a U.S. policy that banned military personnel from discrimination against or harassing closet gays and also barred openly homosexual persons from military service, was repealed a year ago.
The act also banned gays from disclosing their sexual orientation or sharing about their relationships.
One recent study found that there was "no overall negative impact on military readiness, unit cohesion, recruitment, retention, or morale."
