Retired Generals Ask Mattis to Allow Transgender Recruits

Retired Generals Ask Mattis to Allow Transgender Recruits
Three retired Army generals and an advocacy group on Wednesday urged Defense Secretary Jim Mattis against what they say could be a return to "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" for transgender troops.

The military is set to begin accepting transgender recruits under a policy change last year but some of the services still have concerns and Mattis may be set to weigh in with a final decision on fully carrying out the plan, anonymous sources recently told Military Times.

The female officers, who wrote an open letter released by the Palm Center, said Mattis should uphold the existing policy due to evidence that allowing transgender troops will have little negative effect on the services.
