Former Air Force Major Mike Almy speaks at a press conference with members of the Senate and supporters of Don't Ask Don't Tell. Almy was kicked out of the Air Force after superiors investigated his personal emails. The Senate just took a big step toward ending the military's ban on openly gay service members. By a vote of 63 to 33, the Senate voted to end debate on a bill repealing the military's Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy, opening the door for a final Senate vote on the standalone repeal bill passed earlier by the House. Later in the afternoon, by a vote of 65 to 31 the Senate voted to repeal the military's Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy. It was a rare Saturday session in the US Capitol in Washington DC on December 18, 2010. (Photo by Jeff Malet)
