Video: DADT Repeal Signing Ceremony, One Year Ago


One year ago today, the legislative battle over "don't ask, don't tell" came to a definitive end when President Obama signed the repeal bill during a ceremony in Washington, D.C.

"No longer will our country be denied the service of thousands of patriotic Americans who were forced to leave the military -- regardless of their skills, no matter their bravery or their zeal, no matter their years of exemplary performance -- because they happen to be gay," Obama said. "No longer will tens of thousands of Americans in uniform be asked to live a lie, or look over their shoulder, in order to serve the country that they love."
