I think the real story here isn’t the Major’s sexuality, but the how her command came to decision to file discharge paperwork, especially with about two years to go for retirement.

I am especially curious how this issue came to the attention of the Air Force since it sounds as though she kept her affairs at home and didn't "tell."
From the statement of facts in the decision "While serving in the Air Force, Major Witt never told any member of the military that she was homosexual. In July 2004, Major Witt was contacted by Major Adam Torem, who told her that he had been assigned to investigate an allegation that she was homosexual. She declined to make any statement to him."
So not only did she not violate the don't tell part of the policy, the Air Force itself violated the "don't ask" part.
