Top Air Force official speaks out in favor of transgender personnel in the military
The top official in the U.S. Air Force has indicated that the military may soon put an end to its ban on transgender personnel.
The Hill reported Wednesday that Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James said that the military is preparing to reassess its policies against including trans staff and soldiers in the nation’s war machine.
James said in an interview with USA Today, “Times change.”
The ban on trans troops, she said, “is likely to come under review in the next year or so, so I think we should stand by.”
“From my point of view, anyone who is capable of accomplishing the job should be able to serve,” James concluded.
