By Dave Thompson


Bismarck, ND – Next month, the US Senate will take up the defense appropriations bill. In that bill is a provision to repeal the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy concerning gays in the military. It's already passed the house. And as Prairie Public's Dave Thompson reports, representatives of the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network are in North Dakota, drumming up support for the repeal.
