Q&A / Hall of Fame vet: DADT violates constitutional rights

Dr. Doris Troth Lippman, professor of nursing, said of the effort to repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell': “I think, if anything, wartime is probably one of the best times. You need to have everyone together and united and valuing every one of your fellow soldiers. When you’re at war you depend on whoever’s shooting next to you or in the tank with you to be somebody that you really feel will help you in any circumstances. I don’t think most people who face death moment-to-moment are really thinking about whether the person standing next to them is lesbian or gay.”
