Prlodi sees policy's demise as "defining" victory

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi ranks the lifting of the military ban on openly LGBT troops as "very high" on the list of accomplishments during her four-year run as speaker of the House and one that "will be remembered as a defining time when we said no to discrimination." 

Pelosi gave strong credit to out U.S. Reps. Barney Frank, D-Mass., Tammy Baldwin, D-Wis., and our own Jared Polis, D-Colo., for helping end the policy.
