Defense plans to reduce the number of gays dismissed from military

Defense Secretary Robert Gates is planning to try to limit the number of gay troops who are dismissed from the military.

He's expected to tell a Senate panel of his plans today, while also discussing a one-year effort to decide how to revise the "don't ask, don't tell" policy on gays in the military.  It's the first in-depth look at that policy.

Gates is expected to say he would use as much legal latitude as possible when it comes to implementing the current policy.
