High Cost of Don't Ask Don't Tell
The Human Rights Campaign renewed its call for the repeal of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy in light of a new report obtained by several newspapers showing that the policy has cost nearly $200 million for the replacement and training of personnel who had to be recruited when gay and lesbian soldiers were ousted from the military. The study also showed that nearly 800 specialists with critical skills have been fired, including 322 linguists, 54 of whom specialized in Arabic.
"Discharging highly trained, patriotic service members solely for their sexual orientation is bad for security, and bad for the country. Just this week, Great Britain announced it would begin actively recruiting gay and lesbian citizens for their military. Our strongest international allies are putting the security of their nation first. We should too," said HRC Vice President of Policy David M. Smith.
The report, conducted by the Govern-ment Accountability Office (GAO), does not include costs associated with discharging officers or trained, skilled specialistsmeaning that the actual cost is likely much higher.
"The choice we now face is clear: Spend $191 million on firing patriotic Americans or spend the same amount on a dozen Blackhawk helicopters or 800 sidewinder missiles," said C. Dixon Osburn, Executive Director of SLDN. "Our priority should always be defense and security. The Military Readiness Enhancement Act is the best proposal to do just that."
"Given the incredible demand on our nation's armed forces right now, it is simply a matter of common sense that we would encourage every single American to serve if that is their wish," said Smith. "There are continuing stories that the armed forces need more trained soldiers to help maintain security at home and in Iraq. We should let every American serve."
