Portland City Commissioners gather in front of City Hall to celebrate the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."  Portlander Shannon Murtaugh wanted to serve in the military for twenty years but could not because of her open sexuality.  She thanked supporters who rallied for the repeal. Murtaugh says she faced a military tribunal in Okinawa, Japan after someone said she was homosexual. If she had been less-than-honorably discharged from the military,  she would have lost opportunities for federal college grants and working in government jobs.
