The ban on transgender people serving openly in the military could be about to end. Defense Secretary Ash Carter announced Monday a working group would study the implications of allowing transgender service members.
In a press release, Carter called the current regulations "outdated," "confusing" and "inconsistent" with the military's values.
In an interview with USA Today last year, Air Force Secretary Deborah Lee James called for the ban to be lifted.
