    DADT: we're on the wrong side of history

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Frequent iReport contributor omekongo says the recent repeal of the 'don't ask, don't tell' ban on gays serving openly in the miliary is 'going to make all branches of our military stronger.'
    - dsashin, CNN iReport producer

    History has shown us that we have always been on the wrong side of history as it relates to segregation, especially with the military. We said blacks couldn't serve and we were wrong. We said women couldn't serve and we were wrong. Now with DADT, we see that we have been wrong again. Our country is stronger when we allow everyone in this country to bring their talents to the table. America has corrected many of its injustices over the years. I am happy with this latest correction that will put us once again on the right side of history.
