WASHINGTON, D.C. - Servicemembers United, the nation's largest organization of gay and lesbian troops and veterans and their allies, announced today that it's new lobbying arm, the Servicemembers United Action Fund, has launched its first web ad on repealing "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." The new ad is the first in a series that will be rolled out during August and September at www.MilitaryReadiness.org.
"This new ad, and the subsequent ads that will be released each week, helps put a human face on the 'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' issue for a national mainstream audience and effectively demonstrates how this outdated law actually harms military readiness," said Alexander Nicholson, Executive Director of Servicemembers United and the Servicemembers United Action Fund.
The new ad series focuses on the theme of how "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" actually harms military readiness. The first ad launched today features former U.S. Army Staff Sergeant Brian Muller, a combat veteran and skilled Bomb Disposal Technician who was discharged under "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."
Several ads from the series will also be selected to air on national cable networks and local television stations in Servicemembers United's high-priority Senate target states in September.
