Obama to sign repeal of 'don't ask, don't tell'

(CNN) - President Obama will sign the Don't Ask, Don't Tell Repeal Act of 2010 into law Wednesday, ending a policy enacted in 1993 that banned openly gay and lesbian soldiers from military service.

The changes won't be immediate, possibly taking several months to implement, the White House has said.

    Today is a historic day for this country and for my generation. Discrimination by any other name is still discrimination. Congratulations Congress for steeping into the 21st century.
