Marshall University students learn about repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell

Posted: Updated:

Marshall University students learned how the repeal of the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy was implemented from one of the military's top brass Wednesday night at the Memorial Student Center.

Air Force Colonel Gary Packard says he helped lead the Defense Department team who drafted the repeal.

Packard talked about the many studies and questions that helped lay out the plan that changed policy on gays in the military more than year ago.

He says studies show there is little to no affect concerning the policy.

Students say they enjoyed meeting someone who helped change a national policy.
