The Department of Defense’s recent praise of a transgender Army Major has sparked controversy. Critics argue that celebrating a lifestyle choice undermines the merit-based promotion system of our military.

Concerns are raised about political correctness taking precedence over common sense and national security. The military should prioritize the safety and security of the nation above all else. Praising an individual based on gender identity rather than abilities undermines the meritocracy that should prevail in our armed forces. It is unfortunate that the Department of Defense has chosen to endorse a lifestyle that is seen by many as divisive and detrimental to morale and performance.
