U.S. Military Prepping for Transgender Recruits
U.S. MILITARY PREPARING TO ACCEPT TRANSGENDER APPLICANTS
(CNN) – The U.S. military is preparing to accept transgender applicants.
The Pentagon said Wednesday; the Defense Department is taking steps to receive transgender recruits into the ranks as soon as January 1st.
President Trump announced a transgender ban in August, but it is yet to be implemented.
Just last month, a second federal judge blocked enforcement of the prohibition.
Shortly after Trump’s directive in August, defense secretary James Mattis said he would work with a panel of experts to recommend how the military should put the administration’s transgender guidance into effect.
