It's been almost a year since the repeal of "Don't Ask Don't Tell." And a new study says so far it hasn't had a negative impact.
Those findings came from "The Palm Center", a group that does research on sexual minorities in the military. The group interviewed members of the military just as "Don't Ask Don't Tell" was repealed and once again recently.
They interviewed both supporters of the repeal and those against it, as well as active duty service members who are gay. They also observed four military units and did some other research. They interviewed Generals and Admirals who signed a 2009 letter saying the repeal would undermine the military.
They found that the repeal did not affect military readiness including cohesion, recruitment, retention, assaults, harassment or morale. They did go on to say a few downsides were found, but in no instance did negative consequences outweigh benefits.
Jane Pitts, a KCEN Facebook fan says," Anyone willing to put their life on the line for the Constitution shouldn't be questioned. A person is a person is a person."
While Brian Wolf, a KCEN Facebook fan says, "I don't care who or what you want you have sex with. Just don't force it down my throat saying I have to accept it. Also as a professional army we should not talk about our sexual encounters weather it's homo or heterosexual in the work environment. "
Now, some against the repeal have said it's too early to say whether it has had a negative or no impact on the military.
