The National Defense Authorization Act has more to it than the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell.

Tim Embree, an Iraq veteran and a legislative associate with the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, told the DorobekINSIDER that if Congress doesn't pass the Defense bill, it will be the first time in 48 years, Embree said.

Embree explained what the impact to veterans could be if the act does not pass.
