10 years after ‘don’t ask, don’t tell,’ cadets see progress

U.S. Coast Guard Lt. Kelli Normoyle, Commanding Officer of the Coast Guard Cutter Sanibel, descends stairs aboard the vessel, Thursday, Sept. 16, 2021, at a shipyard in North Kingstown, R.I. Normoyle was one of two cadets who formally started the process to create the CGA Spectrum Diversity Council just a few months after the law known as "don't ask, don't tell" was repealed on Sept. 20, 2011.
