WASHINGTON (AP) — Officials say Pentagon leaders will roll out a plan Friday that is expected to give the military services about three months to train their forces on the new law allowing gays to serve openly.
The plan will outline the swath of personnel, recruiting and other regulations that must be changed, And it will describe three levels of training for the troops, their commanders and the key administrators, recruiters and other leaders who will have to help implement the changes.
Officials familiar with the plan described it on condition of anonymity because it has not been finalized or made public.
Word of the plan comes a day after President Barack Obama told the nation in his State of the Union address that the change was in sight.
