Witt, a lesbian, was discharged from the Air Force in 2007 after the husband of a woman she was seeing wrote a note to her superiors disclosing her sexual orientation. The flight nurse is now arguing for her reinstatement, claiming her dismissal was unconstitutional.
If Witt wins her court case, she will be the first woman allowed to serve openly as a lesbian since "don't ask, don't tell" was put into place in 1993.
Gay rights activists believe that if Witt wins her court case, it could help build momentum for repealing the policy.
Last Thursday, a federal judge ruled in California that the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy was unconstitutional, putting the Obama administration in a political bind, caught between a duty to defend established law and a promise to have the law overturned.
Our question to you today: Should the military's policy of "don't ask, don't tell" be repealed?
