Editor: Don't ask, don't tell violates gay military members' First Amendment's rights to free speech, due process and open association. Equally unjust is the fact don't ask, don't tell damages our military by forcing it to reject talented people as this nation of ours scrambles to fulfill the "needs" of the various services in our time(s) of war. Don't ask, don't tell weakens our national security when it disregards a citizen's dedication and willingness to lose his or her life and limb to defend and protect the very Constitution for which we continue to build and strengthen this great nation of ours.
