ST. PETERSBURG, FL — For the 11th anniversary of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” repeal, local Veteran Master Sergeant Adrienne Sproul, US Army (Ret.) reflects on her time in service, and how Eric’s work helping to repeal ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ qualifies him for Congress. In her Op-Ed, Sproul reflects on her time in service, the harm of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell, and how the repeal demonstrated how leaders in DC can work together on tough issues to help America live up to its values.
“When I think about what Eric’s work repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell means for his ability to lead in Washington, I think about how it helped him show determined leadership as a good person,” said Adrienne Sproul. “He had to put himself in other peoples’ shoes and think about what they were going through. I also reflect on how Eric was able to achieve an outcome that many of us believed too difficult and too good to be true.”
