Yesterday, the Senate unanimously passed Senator Barbara Boxer's amendment banning anyone convicted of a felony sexual assault from joining our armed forces. Defense Secretary Robert Gates established the policy
administratively in 2009, but Sen. Boxer’s amendment is an important first step in codifying the ban into law. The National Defense Authorization Act is still being debated in the Senate, but if it passes (as it is expected to in the next few days), the change will be made official and permanent.
