Armed Services,

President Trump’s recent announcement to disallow service by transgendered individuals is an opportunity to remind ourselves what military service is—and what it is not. The Armed Services should not be a lab for social experiments, a testing ground for inclusion or a battleground in the sexual revolution. The American military should...
