text reads:
After years of war, the United States military is desperate for new recruits—unless they happen to be openly gay. 

A provocative portrait of bravery despite exclusion, ASK NOT explores the history of the infamous “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy and reveals the personal stories of gay Americans willing to risk their lives for a country that criminalizes the act of coming out.
