Omar Lopez, a veteran of the U.S. Navy who was discharged under "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT), desperately wants to re-enlist and serve the country that he loves.
Last week, after a federal judge ruled the policy unconstitutional, Omar went to his local recruitment office to see if he could re-enlist.
Despite the law being ruled unconstitutional, Omar was turned away from the office and told that -- until the President goes on national television declaring the policy overturned -- the military has no intention of adjusting its enlistment practices.
Our Commander-in-Chief made a promise this year in the State of the Union address to repeal DADT in 2010 -- and we are now waiting to see whether the Department of Justice will continue to fight for DADT to remain the law of the land.
Will you join us by volunteering to take action when/if President Obama comes to your area?
