U.S. Air Force Staff Sergeant Anthony Loverde was discharged in 2008 under Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell, but will now be reinstated to active duty. Loverde is the second of three discharged servicemembers who sued for reinstatement with support from the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network and law firm Morrson & Foerster. Petty Officer 2nd Class Jase Daniels was reinstated as a U.S. Navy linguist in December, and a similar resolution is expected soon for former Air Force Major Mike Almy.
