Mtn. Home pilot challenges Don't Ask Don't Tell

Posted By on Thu, May 21, 2009 at 2:42 PM

A highly decorated pilot from Mountain Home Air Force Base went on national television this week to publicly oppose the military's Don't Ask Don't Tell policy.

Barring intervention from Air Force Secretary Michael Donley, Lt. Col. Victor Fehrenbach, an F-15E weapons systems officer, will soon be honorably discharged, according to Air Force Times. The reason for his dismissal: Fehrenbach is gay.

Fehrenbach will not receive his retirement benefits if discharged. BW has a tentative interview with Lt. Col, Fehrenbach tomorrow, so check back for more information on this case.

You can watch Fehrenbach's interview with MSNBC's Rachel Maddow below:
