Major Phillips with the Arkansas National Guard told us over the phone that they haven't received guidance from the National Guard on implementation so for now, they are standing ready for direction from higher ups.

Republican' Caitlyn Jenner has come out to slam President Donald Trump's newly announced policy of banning transgenders in the United States armed forces. He cited the military's budget and readiness as reasoning for the ban, saying "our military must be focused on decisive and overwhelming victory and can not be burdened with the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail".

Former Army Captain James Hasson, who served in Afghanistan, told Fox News Radio, "It definitely would've been preferable if this announcement had been made in closer coordination with the Pentagon, and rolled out in a more appropriate manner". "And that was, as they said, minimal".

People in the transgender community were upset.

Trump's action drew an immediate rebuke from a leading group supporting transgender rights and lawmakers who had favored last year's policy change. Laila Villanueva, a transgender woman. It was during a deployment in the Middle East that year that she realized she was trans. Not long after, however, she was advised to return to work so she could receive medical benefits for an injury she had while serving overseas. "I was able and fit and I wanted to do it".

Here's what Fanning is telling NBC's "Today Show": "If you're a transgender service member anywhere in the world, you are very nervous about what you're hearing, and now you're probably very confused and very frightened about what the future holds for you, when your commander in chief tweets a message like this, essentially dismissing your service". "I suspect that many of those who doubt the abilities of our diverse service personnel might be more reluctant to serve than they are to comment".

"Think for yourself, if you woke up this morning and found out that your president just said we don't want you or you don't count", Terry DeCarlo with The Center said.

Other tech executives, including Google CEO Sundar Pichai and YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki, tweeted that they were grateful for the transgender members of the military.

"You want to disrupt the mission?"

"Years of service could mean nothing", said Kiaya Bender, who transitioned after leaving the military. "But the people who are serving are there and they're doing it well". "The fitness standards are designed around biological characteristics of male and female, because they're created with the idea of how well an individual handles their body weight, which is the essence of military fitness", Hasson said. Since this repeal, LGBT persons (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) people can "proudly serving in the canadian armed forces, and this, free of harassment and discrimination", has noted recently, the ministry of Defence. "It makes it hard to have an objective standard".
