case study: major rogers

The context of the Major Rogers case was the military’s policy “Don’t Ask; Don’t Tell.”  Support for changing that policy seems to be changing, particularly within the military itself where evidence is growing that concealing homosexuality is not consistent with the integrity expected of service.  Here’s a take from today’s Boston Globe.

In an essay in the current Joint Force Quarterly, and first reported on by the Globe’s Bryan Bender, Air Force Colonel Om Prakash called for homosexual soldiers to be allowed to serve in the open. Prakash wrote the research essay as a student at the National Defense University, and it won the secretary of defense’s national security essay competition. Prakash now works for Gates at the Pentagon.
