Repeal Gives An Openly Gay Soldier Hope

Listen Now

Sergeant Luiza Fritz of Denver was discharged from the military in 2008 under Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. That’s the policy banning gays from serving openly. Now, Fritz is waiting to hear the details of the repeal, which the White House says will go into effect in a matter of months. Fritz hopes to reenlist despite the painful events that led to her discharge. She talks with Ryan Warner about what happened during her second tour of duty with the Iowa National Guard.
