CA state senator introduces resolution to stop DADT recoupments for discharged soldiers.
Another story reports on efforts to stop the military from trying to recoup tuition from soldiers discharged under “don’t ask don’t tell”, especially as the policy is under gradual retirement and has been declared unconstitutional by a federal judge. State senator Christine Kehoe (D-San Diego) in California has introduced a resolution that calls for the President, Defense Secretary and armed forces to stop levying “fines” – that is, recoupment collection actions, against such soldiers. The story was posted on Facebook by AVER, American Veterans for Equal Rights.
