Report: Pentagon Plans to Repeal Ban on Transgender Troops July 1

The ban on transgender service members will be lifted July 1, the Pentagon reportedly plans to announce. The repeal is a decision that would end nearly a year of back-and-forth about how to allow those officers to serve openly, according to Defense officials.
