Following a federal judge’s injunction against the "don’t ask, don’t tell" policy, the Department of Defense is now accepting openly gay applicants. The Justice Department, however, has appealed the federal judge’s ruling.
Military recruiters have been told that the judge’s injunction could get reversed at any time. As a result, recruiters have been told to inform openly gay recruits that while their initial application could be accepted, they may also be denied if the policy changes while the application is processed.
