Sailors, Marines begin training to phase out Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell

Sailors and Marines will participate in training sessions by the end of June as the Navy phases out the “Don’t Ask Don’t Tell” policy.

The San Diego Tribune reports the sessions will include a slideshow detailing what has and has not changed.

There will also be 14 real-life scenarios – sailors will be depicted participating in gay-pride parades or engaging in public displays of affections. Sailors will then be asked if the behavior depicted is allowed.

The training sessions will be up to two hours long, and conducted in small groups.


Each service branch is preparing their own training sessions based on guidelines from the Pentagon.
