“The United States Armed Forces has done some of its greatest work when it has dismantled barriers to service and opened its ranks to Americans of different backgrounds and identities.
Inclusivity within the U.S. military has been hard-fought but admittedly slow. Black service members have fought in every single war since America’s founding, but were not permitted to serve alongside white soldiers until 1948. Similar barriers existed for women and gay service members and continue to prevent many people from serving openly or at all today.
Yet a full and robust U.S. military is one that allows all Americans to serve their country, regardless of things such as immigration status, gender identity, religion, and so on. Removing barriers to service allows everyone to protect and fight for the same American dream.”
