“I was never fully discharged and have been substituting drills because of my schedule of lobbying and pushing for repeal. I attended National Guard duty this past weekend because we needed to train on critical skills for a possible upcoming deployment. My discharge is still pending, but I have returned to work – and there are no instances of decreased good order or discipline. I sleep in an open bay with little privacy. No issues. Good to be back with my unit – although I can still be fired at any moment for DADT.” – Lieutenant Dan Choi, commenting on reports that he had returned to his Army National Guard unit for training exercises.
According to an additional statement by Sue Fulton of Knights Out, an LGBT organization formed by Lieutenant Choi, “This is not a change in Army policy, nor any action from ‘higher headquaters’ that we are aware of.” (via Towleroad)
