98575924West Point grad Lt. Dan Choi--who famously outed himself on national TV, thereby initiating his ouster from the Army under its gay ban--marched to New York's Times Square Armed Forces Recruiting Station on Tuesday to re-enlist.
A federal judge recently declared unconstitutional the military's "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gay service, then rejected the Obama administration's plea to stay that decision this week. The military has announced that recruiting officers will accept enlistees who are openly gay.
Choi was arrested in April for handcuffing himself to the White House gates in protest of the gay ban.
