It’s important to remember:
▪️It was less than a decade ago that Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell was an official policy in the US military.
▪️It was a little over 3 years ago that there was an all out ban on trans folx serving in any capacity in the U.S. Military.
▪️It was a little over a year ago that the DOD issued a transphobic policy on trans military service, including limiting access to medical treatment and making it more difficult for trans folx to be recruited.
