U.S. Military to Accept Transgender Recruits
U.S. MILITARY WILL ACCEPT TRANSGENDER RECRUITS BEGINNING JANUARY 1ST
(CNN) – The new year brings new hope for transgender individuals who want to join the military.
The Defense Department is taking steps to receive transgender recruits into the ranks as soon as today.
But, those who join know the legal road ahead could be bumpy.
President Trump announced a transgender ban in August, but it is yet to be implemented.
Last month, a second federal judge blocked enforcement of the prohibition.
