PORTLAND - U.S. Sen. Susan Collins was approached at a reception Friday by several veterans who were eager to thank her for her role in helping to repeal the military's "don't ask don't tell" policy, which banned openly gay, lesbian and bisexual people from serving.
Collins said their gratitude was misplaced.
"It is I who thank them for serving our country," said Collins.
The Maine Republican made her remarks as the guest of honor at EqualityMaine's celebration of the repeal of the policy, one of the events in the 25th Southern Maine Pride Week.

Doesn’t the word ‘repeal’ mean to go back to the previous policy?
Wasn’t the previous policy “No Homos in the Military”
‘Don’t Ask Don’t Tell’ is sound policy FOR EVERY WORKPLACE

The UCMJ still bars sodomy. I expect they will change that as well.
