How Much Did ROTC College Student Sara Isaacson’s Coming Out Cost? $79,265.14

Sara Isaacson, a 21-year-old lesbian former ROTC student at UNC-Chapel Hill, will likely be on the hook for $79,265.14 — the amount the U.S. Army (read: taxpayers) provided in scholarship funds. After coming out to her commander (after coming out to herself) two days before Obama’s State of the Union address, Isaacson tells CampusProgress she was dropped from the ROTC program because of DADT; her commander is making the recommendation she repay all of her tuition. And here you thought Obama cared about gays in the military and making college more affordable.
