Thank you to Representatives Boswell, Braley and Loebsack

One Iowa extends a thank you to our Representatives Boswell, Loebsack and Braley who voted to repeal Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell yesterday. We would also like to thank everyone who took the time to send a letter to Congress on behalf of the DADT repeal.

Rep. Boswell issued this statement after the vote.

“After serving 20 years in the military, including two tours of combat in Vietnam, I support the repeal of the ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ policy. During my Army career, I served alongside great men and women who, regardless of sexual orientation, were courageous military leaders that I trusted with my life and the lives of the troops under my command. The character and strength of a solider is reliant on their courage, loyalty, honor, and ability to do their job – not their sexuality.”
