US transgender ban in the military to be lifted as of July 1

The ban on openly transgender people in the US military will end on July 1, according to a story today in USA Today.

The plan has been in the works for about a year.  Estimates for the number of transgender troops range from 2000 to 15000.

The New York Times has a detailed editorial explaining the timetable that transgender recruits must  follow.
