This is the right thing to do and it's yet another afront to Trump's regressive policy promoted by his socially conservative cronies. Trans individuals should be allowed to serve in the military alongside others. They are a part of today's America and the military should reflect that. Today's military is composed of young millennials who don't see the problem with this as older conservatives do. If we expect to continue to attract talented young people into the military to fill the need for the skills required the military should be adaptive to a more diverse culture.
