In an interview with USA TODAY, Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James says the ban on transgender troops is likely to be reassessed and should be lifted. "Times change," She said, adding that the policy "Is likely to come under review in the next year or so." Asked whether dropping the ban would affect military readiness, she replied: "From my point of view, anyone who is capable of accomplishing the job should be able to serve." Ref. USAToday.

I have nothing against transgender folk but I just don't think the military is where they need to be. Being in the military can already be a complex situation so anything extra can cause a lot of torment between fellow soldiers.

I understand why it is happening but I really can't imagine jar heads getting used to something like this. Officially there will be acknowledgement but acceptance is a whole other thing.

Transgender cadets will be allowed to graduate but not serve with Pentagon policy in flux

Transgender cadets at the Air Force and Army military academies will be allowed to graduate this month in their new, preferred genders but will not be allowed to join the ranks of the military's newest officers, USA TODAY has learned.
