Gay cadet resigns from West PointPosted: Updated:
(08/12/10) HIGHLAND FALLS - A West Point cadet is calling it quits because of the ?Don't Ask, Don't Tell? military policy.
Katherine Miller says she wanted to serve, but she also wants to be able to speak freely about her sexuality, but that the policy prohibits that.
In her resignation letter Miller wrote, "I have created a heterosexual dating history to recite to fellow cadets when they inquire. I have endured unwanted approaches by male cadets for fear of being accused as a lesbian by rejecting or reporting these events."
Miller says she wants to fight to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and if she is successful will enlist in the Army.
