The Huffington Post obtained a slideshow being used for training for DADT repeal in the Army. The full document is after the jump, but here are some bureaucratic highlights that answer a lot of questions people have been asking over the last few months.
- No one has to change their beliefs, and chaplains are still allowed to say homosexuality is wrong.
- Discrimination and harassment are already banned, and such bans apply to LGB servicemembers.
- There will not be separate quarters, etc., for people who aren't comfortable with LGB troops.
- No one can get out of the military now just because they don't like LGB people.
- No information will be collected on sexual orientation.
- Because of DOMA, same-sex spouses are not eligible for the same benefits as opposite-sex spouses of servicemembers, such as health care, clearance to enter another country, military housing as a dependent, etc., although there are some benefits that are already open to anyone a servicemember designates.
- Information on countries that ban homosexuality will include that fact, but the overseas assignment policy will remain unchanged.
- Troops discharged under DADT can apply for reentry if that was the only reason they were discharged.
