Sacramento - Assembly Speaker John A. Pérez (D-Los Angeles) made the following statement today following the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell:
"Today marks the end of Don't Ask, Don't Tell as policy of the United States military. This is a proud moment for all Americans, especially those who can now openly serve in uniform, with pride, dignity and honor. President Obama and those members of congress who approved the repeal of this policy have taken a profound action to allow every patriotic American the opportunity to defend their country, and I am grateful for their efforts."
