Before 2011, the “don't ask, don't tell” law kept many in the dark. If a service member was gay, they held on to that secret tighter than a tourniquet on the battlefield, or risked discharge. "When ‘don't ask, don't tell' was repealed, for everyone else it was just another day, like 'Oh, it’s OK now.' For me, it was like a weight had been lifted off my shoulders and I could completely be myself," said Shayna Engle, an Air Force inactive reservist.
