Is social engineering going to destroy our military?
Transgender troops serve in silence
Coming out as transgender would get them kicked out of the U.S. military.
WASHINGTON — As the military begins to embrace gays and lesbians, one group feels left out: transgender troops.
These men and women weren't even a blip on the nation's radar until former Navy SEAL Team 6 member Chris Beck revealed in a memoir released last month that he had become Kristin Beck, a woman.
It's unknown how many transgender troops are serving in the U.S. military, largely because they would get kicked out for coming out. About 700,000 Americans in a population of more than 300 million are transsexuals, according to a 2011 study by the Williams Institute at the UCLA School of Law.
