Secretary of Defense, James Mattis made a decision on a controversial policy pertaining to the military armed forces.  Mattis froze the Transgender policy, as of this past Tuesday, claiming that a “study by experts “will be conducted in order to finalize the decision whether Transgender individuals may serve in the military.  This news may seem intriguing, and hopeful for the Transgender community due to the fact that U.S. President Trump’s mission was to prevent them from enlisting in our military.  In a recent statement, Mattis created emphasis regarding how the final recommendation will be based on the panel’s observation; including input from Homeland Security’s Secretary.  Upon attaining that pertinent information, Mattis will ensure that the President is briefed, and will implement the appropriate “policy direction.” Meanwhile, Mattis indicated that ” In the interim, current policy with respect to currently serving members will remain in place.”
