"I expect they will continue to look for openings to deny gay and lesbian service members the same rights and dignity as their straight counterparts. On the substance, Mr. McKeon and Mr. Wilson are simply wrong. The statute only requires that the new regulations be prepared - not issued - before certification."

--SLDN Executive Director Aubrey Sarvis, in response to a letter issued by House Armed Services Committee Chair Rep. Buck McKeon (R-CA) and Rep. Joe Wilson (R-SC) asking for a delay of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" (DADT) repeal, set for September 20, 2011
