On May 25, Time magazine introduced the world to “Soldier X,” a closeted, active servicemember who would blog anonymously about the DADT repeal until it got repealed.
Well DADT has been repealed, so who is he?
It’s 1st Lieutenant Karl Johnson of the Air Force. Yu can see him out of uniform here.
In his coming-out article Johnson said, “Putting aside personal angst, there was the risk [that DADT] posed to our national security; with Don’t Ask Don’t Tell ended, the possibility of extortion evaporates. Our nation will be stronger because of the policy’s demise.”
Of course, everybody knew that long before the repeal.
