Comments:  | Leave A Comment

Defense Secretary Leon Panetta will soon certify that gays can serve openly in the armed services, according to the Associated Press.

Since the ban of gays serving in the armed forces became a formal policy in 1993, an estimated 13,000 people have been expelled for violating the rules.

The Obama administration asked a U.S. appeals court to reconsider the ban, according to a court filing.
