Gay Idaho Officer Sues To Keep Job

Item: Gay Idaho Air Force officer sues to keep job: Victor Fehrenbach, based in Mountain Home, seeks to block his dismissal and overturn the 'don't ask, don't tell' policy/Dan Popkey, Idaho Statesman

More Info: Lt. Col. Victor Fehrenbach turned to a federal court in Boise on Wednesday, seeking to strike down the 1993 law that mandates the military policy. Fehrenbach, with 19 years in the Air Force, learned last week that the Air Force Personnel Board recommended his discharge to Air Force Secretary Michael Donley. His lawsuit says his admission of homosexual conduct was obtained under "coercive circumstances" and that he spoke to clear himself of false allegations of rape.

Question: Do you support the current "don't ask, don't tell" policy in the military?
