Trump's transgender military ban is an insult to all servicemembers

President Trump’s commitment to ban transgender people from serving in the United States military is blatant discrimination, and his use of social media to announce this measure adds insult to injury. This ban runs counter to JWI's work and beliefs, and disparages the brave service of all members serving in our military. Instead of moving backward to the days of “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell," we must continue the progress made in the last few years to create inclusive policies for all military personnel.
