As implementation progressed, conservative
members of Congress continued to try to derail
it. Rep. Duncan Hunter, R-Calif.,
introduced an amendment to the National De-
fense Authorization Act that would have re-
quired all four service chiefs to certify that D ADT
repeal wouldn't hurt the military's readiness.
Another amendment by Rep. Steven Palazzo,
R-Miss, would require the military to "accommo-
date" servicemembers who believe that "homo-
sexual or bisexual conduct is immoral and/or an
inappropriate.expression of human sexuality."
The Navy previously announced that it would
allow same-Sex Weddings on bases in states
where it's legal.
In May, it reversed course saying that the De-
fense of Marriage Act precluded it from allowing
chaplains to perform marriages for gay and les^
bian servicemembers on base.
As certification approached, the Pentagon
made it clear that same-sex spouses of military
personnel would not be recognized and would
receive none of the benefits opposite-sex spouses
On July 22, Obama, Defense Secretary Leon
Panetta and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
Adm. Mike Mullen certified that the U.S. military
Was ready for DADT repeal.

On Sept. 20 gays and lesbians Could serve
openly, if not equally, in the military. Members of
the military began coming out without fear of ex-
pulsion, but those who had same-Sex spouses
were still not given 40 benefits that opposite-sex
Those benefits include healthcare for the

Even if the couple has children, the spouse
cannot be issued an identification card to get on
base with the military member's child for health-
care and cannot access the base attorney to write
wills and other papers normally drawn up before
an overseas deployment.
Servicemembers dismissed under DADT
began to consider re-enlisting.
Cully Johnson, an owner of Dallas Eagle* said
at a Sept. 20 DADT repeal celebration that he
would like to return to complete his military ca-
Although gays and lesbians can now serve
without fear of dismissal or rebuke, the ban on
transgenders serving remains in effect.
More than 14,000 men and women were dis-
charged under DADT during its 18-year exis-
tence with some estimates of the Cost to
taxpayers running as high as $700 million.

pet Of the week / Sponsored by Petropolitan
Happy is an aptly named love bug. She's a 7-month-old terrier-beagle mix who
currently weighs about 28 pounds but, like many of us this time of the year,
could stand to lose a few. She's eager to please, full of energy and loving.
Happy is a friendly girl who's hoping for a forever home for the New Year.
Happy and many other dogs, puppies, cats and kittens are available for adoption from Dallas Animal
Services, 1818 N.Westmoreland at 1-30, just minutes west of Downtown Dallas. The shelter is open
Monday-Saturday 11 a.m.-6:30 p.m. and Sundays 12 noon-5 p.m. This weekend, the shelter will close
at 5 p.m. on New Year's Eve and be closed on New Year's Day. The regular adoption cost is $85 for dogs
and $55 for cats, but discounts are offered for animals in the shelter longer than 45 days, to senior cit-
izens and to those who adopt two animals at the same time. All dogs are negative for heartworms,
and cats have been tested for FeLV and FIV. For more information, visit
www.DailasAnimalServices.org, or call 214-671-0249.
