The United States Army has put together an informational website regarding the upcoming repeal of “Don't Ask, Don't Tell.”
According to the Army, the website was launched last week to provide the most up-to-date information for servicemembers and their families on the law's repeal.
"It's a way for the Army to provide the latest and greatest information about the repeal to Soldiers, family members and the public," said spokesperson Lt. Col Timothy M. Beninato via a media release.
"Currently, the chain of command is the primary means for asking questions, which can significantly limit non-military individuals' ability to ask questions about the repeal," Beninato added.
The website hosts videos, news articles, a frequently asked questions section and downloadable training material.
The Don't Ask, Don't Tell Repeal Act of 2010 still needs to be certified by the president, secretary of defense and the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff and a further 60 day period must follow before the law is finally repealed.
