This past weekend the boards of directors of Servicemembers Legal Defense Network and OutServe voted to become one organization by October, SLDN announced this morning.

The move comes more than nine months after the end of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" and more than six months after SLDN's executive director, Aubrey Sarvis, announced his plan to leave his position once a new director was hired.

The resulting organization will have a new name and the new board will be led by one leader from each group. According to today's news release, the coming months until October will be spent "unifying" the groups on administrative, financial and programatic fronts.
