Grandchildren ask Obama to get rid of Don’t ask, Don’t tell
Susan Smith is a former Army Nurse and now lives in Silver Spring, Maryland.
My five grand kids have written to Obama a couple of times expressing their desire for equal rights for folks like their gay grandmother. I have told them about my experiences in the military and those of people like Joan Darrah under Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. When one of my granddaughters heard what Obama said in his State of the Union about ending Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell but not when he would do it, she called me and said, “Guess we’re going to have to write another letter to Obama and remind him to hurry up and sign that paper, Grandma.” So she did.
