For gay Americans serving in the military, they have victory. With a margin of 65-31 the Clinton Era Don't Ask Don't Tell policy has been repealed. This will allow gay Americans to to serve openly in the military.

For Mountain Home-based Air Force Lieutenant Colonel Victor Fehrenbach, Saturday’s vote to repeal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” is one he’s waited years for. Fehrenbach faces discharge from the military because he’s gay.
Fehrenbach was in Washington, D.C. for the Senate vote. He sat in the gallery alongside other active and discharged servicemen and women as the votes were tallied.

I am grateful to all who serve in the military and offer thanks to be a part of the Greatest Nation on Earth.
