Nic Talbott, a transgender man who dreams of enlisting in the military, spoke to Yahoo News just two days after President Biden fulfilled his campaign promise and signed an executive order to reverse a ban on transgender troops.
I am a graduate student at Kent State University, and I am in the process of returning to Army ROTC.
And very shortly after I earned my bachelor’s degree, the Obama administration lifted the policy, or they revised the policy to open transgender military service.
And during that time is when former President Trump made his announcement that he intended to ban transgender people from serving in the military.
So I think for me now, the hardest thing is knowing that she didn’t get to see this ban repealed.
