Michelle Obama: DADT repeal made country 'stronger, freer, and fairer'

Thursday marked the first anniversary of the military implementing the repeal of “Don’t ask, don’t tell,” which formerly prevented gay service members from openly serving in the military.

Michelle Obama sent a personal tweet marking the occasion — tagged “-mo” to indicate she wrote it herself — that the president re-tweeted.

Republicans, who largely opposed the repeal, have been quiet on the topic and are unlikely to revisit the legislation any time soon.

Democrats who supported the bill in Congress tweeted that they are just as proud of the move now as they were then.
