Navy: DADT Training Done by June


The Navy announced Tuesday it will finish training all of its members on the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell" by June 30.

Leaders from each of the military branches submitted their training plans to the Pentagon Friday, but the Navy made its plans public, The Washington Post reports.

Each branch is required to train their personnel in three top-down intervals: first military chaplains, lawyers, and civilian public affairs officers, then commanding officers, and finally rank and file troops. April 30 is the goal date to finish commander training, and then rank-and-file sailors should be done with their training by June 30.

Because President Barack Obama, Defense secretary Robert M. Gates, and Joint Chiefs of Staff chairman, Adm. Mike Mullen must certify that all members of the members of the military have been sufficiently trained before the ban is officially lifted, the earliest that full implementation could happen would be September, said Aubrey Sarvis, executive director of the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network.
