Groups that support the repeal of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy for gays will bring their story to North Carolina's largest city.
The Human Rights Campaign and Servicemembers United are
sponsoring a public town hall discussion at 6 p.m. Wednesday at the
Charlotte public library on North Tryon Street. Among those who will speak are Jarrod Chlapowski, a former U.S. Army Korean linguist who decided not to re-enlist because of the policy; Alex Nicholson, executive director of Servicemembers United who was discharged from the Army under the policy; and Julianne Sohn, who was forced to resign her commission under the policy.
A bill to repeal "don't ask, don't tell" was introduced
earlier this year in the U.S. House.
