Sgt. Shane Ortega: What is the Army’s next move?

Clearly, good things can come from tangled bureaucracy.  One of those things, in my opinion, is the military career of Sgt. Shane Ortega.

The US Military has been very good to Sgt. Ortega (and, in my view, Ortega is good for the military).  The military quietly permitted Sgt. Ortega to transition to male while serving his country.   However, Ortega is still listed as ‘female’ in the military database.  Sgt. Ortega’s commanding officers have formally requested the US Army decide if Ortega can officially serve as a male soldier.

Will the US Military go backwards or forwards into the future?
