Troops are asking what changes are in store for them if Congress lifts a ban on openly gay service.
A working group tasked by Defense Secretary Robert Gates to examine the impact on lifting the 1993 "don't ask, don't tell" policy convened its first survey meeting Tuesday with rank-and-file troops.
Service members were picked at random to attend the meeting, which was held in the Pentagon's auditorium. According to participants, questions were raised on bunking arrangements and military benefits.
