It happened, the Senate voted to repeal the 17-year "don’t ask, don’t tell" policy. They voted 65-31 to let men and women who are gay to serve openly in the military.

President Obama is expected to sign next week and said in a statement  "It is time to recognize that sacrifice, valor and integrity are no more defined by sexual orientation than they are by race or gender, religion or creed."

The policy won’t take effect tunil the president and military advisers certify that this will not hurt the fighting ability of the troops.
