Transgender ban: No policy change for now, says top general (STA BREAKING NEWS and ARCHIVES)

by Theresa @, Thursday, July 27, 2017, 17:47

Transgender people will not be banned from serving in the US military until the president issues guidance to the Pentagon, military officials say.
In a surprise tweet on Wednesday, President Donald Trump announced that the government would not allow them to serve "in any capacity".


It was not clear whether troops on active service would be forced out.
But Gen Joseph Dunford wrote to senior commanders: "We will continue to treat all of our personnel with respect."

Transgender service members have expressed concern that they will be discharged, or unable to re-enlist after Mr Trump's announcement.
