One year after 'don't ask, don't tell' repeal, US military marches on

Army Maj. Heather Mack deployed last year one day before the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," the policy that banned gays, lesbians and bisexuals from serving openly in the U.S. military. Mack left the country she had served for 16 years knowing she could lose her job if she told her colleagues she was in a stable, loving relationship with another woman. By the time her plane landed in Kuwait on Sept. 20, 2011, she was free to tell anyone she pleased.
