Washington, Aug 30: US Defence Secretary Jim Mattis has said that transgender people already in the military will continue to be allowed to serve pending a study on President Dold Trump’s proposed ban. “In the interim, current policy with respect to currently serving members will remain in place,” Mattis said in a statement on Tuesday. He said he would create a panel of experts that would include members of the departments of Defence and Homeland Security “to provide advice and recommendations” on the implementation of the measure, TIME magazine reported.
