Service Members Dismissed Under DADT Since ‘04 To Receive Full Separation Payment

Military service members who were dismissed under the now-repealed 'don't ask, don't tell' policy since Nov. 10, 2004 will receive their full separation payments under a settlement between the ACLU and the U.S. government, BuzzFeed reports. All people discharged from the military under "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" since November 10, 2004 — who had only received one-half separation pay following their discharge — now will be entitled to full separation pay, according to the terms of a settlement agreement reached Monday between the American Civil Liberties Union and the federal government... The case involved approximately 181 honorably discharged veterans who had their separation pay cut in half because of the discriminatory policy, according to the ACLU.
