I just saw a report on Daily Kos (see link to the right) that says that an open gay Arabic translator (and West Point grad) who challenged DADT in court has been recalled to active service. The presumption is that this is an indication of the new Department of Defense policy on enforcing DADT (they aren't anymore).

I think this is great. When the the sky fails to fall over this, another chunk of public opinion will come around to the idea of full and equal rights for all citizens regardless of sexual preference.
I know we've got some contributors and friends of the blog who know a thing or two about this issue and about the Defense department in particular. I'd like to hear their take on this and other developments.
