Lesbian cadet ends fight to return to academy

Army Times reports:

A lesbian former cadet who left the U.S. Military Academy, saying she couldn’t live a lie, was rejected for re-admission Wednesday because of the lingering military ban on gays and said she is giving up on her dream of graduating from the academy. Katherine Miller said in a statement that she plans to graduate from Yale University, which she’s now attending, and join the military through officer candidate school.
