Deccan Chronicle - - WORLD -

Wash­ing­ton: New guid­ance re­leased on Satur­day by the Pen­tagon makes it clear that any trans­gen­der troops cur­rently in the mil­i­tary can reen­list in the next sev­eral months, even as the depart­ment de­bates how broadly to en­force a ban on their ser­vice or­dered by Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump. In a memo to top mil­i­tary lead­ers, de­fence sec­re­tary Jim Mat­tis said a high-level panel will de­ter­mine how to im­ple­ment Mr Trump’s ban on trans­gen­der in­di­vid­u­als in the mil­i­tary.
