Stefanik calls for more time to assess transgender military service

President Trump at an Ohio rally on Tuesday

Spokesman and Navy Capt. Jeff Davis said the Pentagon was working with the White House to "address the new guidance" from Trump, which suggested that a plan or new policy was not now prepared. In a memo to all military branch chiefs he says once Defense Secretary James Mattis gets the President's direction, then Mattis can issue "implementation guidance".

President Donald Trump's plans to reinstate a ban on transgender people serving in the military takes the USA off a short list of countries that allow individuals to serve in the armed forces regardless of gender identity. He wrote the military can not be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption from transgender military service members.

Brewer said military families she knows are eager to know how Trump's three tweets affect their lives.

"They still have the ability to fight and to do what they need to do, what they feel they need to do to secure our country", he said.

People in the transgender community were upset. "This is a shocking and ignorant attack on our military and on transgender troops who have been serving honorably and effectively for the past year". "I don't care what's in someone's trousers, I don't care who they love, I care, can they get the job done?" It was during a deployment in the Middle East that year that she realized she was trans. "I was able and fit and I wanted to do it".

"Our study found that the number of USA transgender service members who are likely to seek transition-related care is so small that a change in policy will likely have a marginal impact on health care costs and the readiness of the force", the Rand researchers wrote. G he thinks two men should just be friends, B to his dumb knowledge is just a phase in college, T he finds confusing so the army is now refusing Trans women who only want to serve, Trans men who want rights we all deserve.

"I turned to my husband, and it was like this weight that was lifted because now we saw what our work was accomplishing", she said. "Rather than sensationalizing division in our USA military -the greatest fighting force on earth -we need to focus on getting our troops the resources they need, and taking care of our veterans when they return home from the battlefield".

"You want to disrupt the mission?"

John McCain, an Arizona Republican who served in the Vietnam War, said.

"There are amazingly fearless trans people who should be allowed to serve", Harrison said. "The fitness standards are designed around biological characteristics of male and female, because they're created with the idea of how well an individual handles their body weight, which is the essence of military fitness", Hasson said.

"We provide care, benefits and other VA services to all Veterans, including transgender Veterans", said Curt Cashour, Press Secretary, Department of Veterans Affairs, in a statement. "It makes it hard to have an objective standard".

Hopkins is also a member of Buffalo's transgender community.

According to a 2016 study by the Rand Corporation commissioned by the Department of Defense, there are about 11,000 transgender people in active duty and the reserves.
