The Military Culture Coalition Stands Up for 1993 Law

In February CMR announced the formation of a Military Culture Coalition (MCC) to encourage communication and cooperation between organizations that support sound military personnel policies. On May 24, in advance of congressional votes on repeal of the 1993 law making homosexuals ineligible for military service (Sec. 654, Title 10, U. S. Code, usually mislabeled "Don't Ask, Don't Tell"), the MCC received new support from a long list of distinguished individuals who signed a formal statement coordinated by the Conservative Action Project, chaired by former U.S. Attorney General Edwin Meese, III.

Memo for the Movement

Several organizations established special web pages with information on the issue, or ran articles on blogs like this one in the "Foundry" blog of the Heritage Foundation by Chuck Donovan:

Ready, Fire, Aim on DADT

Family Research Council published a new report by Lt. Col. Bob Maginnis, USA (Ret.), which provided an excellent history of the 1993 law and the consequences of repealing it:

Mission Compromised: How the Obama Administration is Drafting the Military into the Culture War

Concerned Women for America (CWA)
issued an excellent “Family Voice Bulletin” that analyzes the legislative history of the 1993 law and the administrative policy, DADT:

Homosexuality and the Military: What "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" Is and Why It Matters

Liberty Counsel has issued another excellent report:

Liberty Counsel Joins Campaign to Support Military Families

The Center for Security Policy, Eagle Forum, Alliance Defense Fund, Focus on the Family, Thomas More Law Center, Traditional Values Coalition, the American Family Association, and several groups concerned with the religious liberties of military chaplains have been working with the MCC to mobilize forces in support of the 1993 law.
