West Point ready for 'don't ask, don't tell' repeal
With the U.S. military policy known as "don't ask, don't tell" set to come to an end Tuesday, cadets at West Point will be ready.
The policy had barred gay and lesbian military personnel from serving opening or risk being discharged from the armed forces.
Officials at West Point say that all cadets have taken training regarding the repeal of the policy.
Sarah Haag, a West Point alum who also happens to be a lesbian, says the end of the policy is a huge step forward for the country.
"These people are classmates first, soldiers first. Straight, gay or lesbian secondary," says Haag.
