Lt. Gen. Benjamin Mixon — who received the personal attention of Defense Sec. Robert Gates and Joint Chiefs Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen when he had a letter published in Stars & Stripes defending DADT, and advising service members to reach out to their lawmakers — will receive neither a dismissal nor a letter of reprimand on his official record.
