Don't Ask, Don't Tell: Preserve or Repeal?

After a filibuster fight, the Senate decided not to repeal the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) policy this week. That's the 1993 law that keeps gay troops from serving openly. If it was repealed, what repercussions would it have had for troops? How do servicemembers deal with being gay in the military today versus 20 or 40 years ago? And do gay troops want change, or do they prefer the current policy? Are you in the military? What do you think about the policy - do you want to preserve or repeal DADT? Does being open matter or not?
