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.
