Lt. Dan Choi Formally Discharged

Although he has yet to comment on it publicly, Gay City News revealed yesterday that Lt. Dan Choi was formally discharged from the military last month.
Choi lost his battle with the Pentagon on June 29 when his discharge from the Army under the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy was finalized. While Choi’s National Guard unit informed him by registered mail and with phone messages, he has not disclosed the action. He did not respond to an email seeking comment.
Yesterday Choi and seven other GetEQUAL activists were arrested in Las Vegas for blocking traffic in a protest about Sen. Harry Reid's inaction on ENDA. The eight were still in jail last night, but I'll try and get a statement from Choi today or tomorrow here at Netroots Nation.
