Pentagon ends transgender military ban - CNNPolitics.com

CORALVILLE COURIER EDITOR'S NOTE: This paves the way for taxpayer funded sex change operations.... NOT a proper role of government, doling out other people's money for elective surgeries.

Washington (CNN) The Pentagon said Thursday it was ending the ban on transgender people being able to serve openly in the U.S. military.

The announcement -- which removes one of the last barriers to military service by any individual -- was made by Defense Secretary Ash Carter, who had been studying the issue for almost a year.
 
The decision comes as the military has witnessed major changes in the role of women and the inclusion of gays, lesbians and bisexual service members in recent years.
It drew some criticism from Republicans and conservatives, including Rep. Mac Thornberry, Republican chairman of the House Armed Services Committee, who charged the White House was "prioritizing politics over policy."
