The U.S. Department of Defense issued orders Tuesday to limit service by people with gender dysphoria the same way it restricts individuals with diabetes, heart disease, HIV, and other medical conditions that could endanger soldiers and their units. The orders, signed by Deputy Defense Secretary David Norquist, enact suggestions made by Pentagon leadership a year ago and require the military services to implement the new rules within 30 days.
