Tuesday, the military will take a step closer to equality. The controversial Don't Ask, Don't Tell law is scheduled to run out on Tuesday, meaning that gay and lesbian service members can be open about their sexual orientation and still serve in the military. Recruiters have started accepting enlistment applications from gay and lesbian applicants, and almost all service members have taken special training as a result of the law's repeal. Pentagon spokesman George Little said, "This is something that has been known for a long time. We've gone through a process to certify repeal."
