Throughout the military, there has been a lot of delicate tip-toeing recently over the fate of the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" policy regarding gays serving their country. Now that controversy has found its way to the Air Force Academy.
According to The Denver Post, two gay advocacy groups had planned a dinner this fall at the academy to honor gay and lesbian military members.
But the plan was scotched by the Academy's Association of Graduates, which owns Doolittle Hall where the event was planned to take place in November. Of course, simply attending the function might have been a violation of the don't-tell rule, some might think.
The sponsoring groups told the Post they still plan to hold the dinner, but it won't be at the academy.
