She has a medallion from the state that recognizes her service. He applauds anyone willing to serve, but notes a man who wouldn't qualify to serve with men, might qualify to serve with women, based on the requirements.
She eventually tweeted the below out a few hours later, before following it up with the letter above.
Matt Thorn, executive director of OutServe-SLDN, which represents the LGBT population in the military, said thousands have been serving in the USA armed forces without causing any issues. He had said that the prohibition was outdated.
Understandably, Trump has been harshly criticised for his decision.
Lisa Murkowski (R) voted Tuesday against the motion to proceed to debating health care, Alaska got a call from the Trump administration.
But Mr Trump caused outrage on Wednesday when he announced he would be banning all "transgender individuals" from serving in the military "in any capacity".
Mr. Trump also said it was about the "tremendous medical costs", but a 2016 study found those costs would add less than $9 million to the more than $500 billion defense budget.
"The Department of Defense is awaiting formal guidance from the White House as a follow-up to the commander-in-chief's announcement on military service by transgender personnel", Pentagon spokesman Dana White said in a statement July 27. "I look forward to getting much more information and clarity from our military leaders about the policy the President tweeted today".

Iran's Mehr News Agency cited one of Mirzakhani's relatives as confirming her death on Saturday (15 July). Through it all, Maryam Mirzakhani never settled for the low-hanging fruit, but for the brass ring.
McCain criticized the lack of clarity in Trump's messages.
"The president's tweet this morning.is yet another example of why major policy announcements should not be made via Twitter", he said. "The statement was unclear". "This is a shocking and ignorant attack on our military and on transgender troops who have been serving honorably and effectively for the past year".
"We all have the right to love who we want to love, live where we want to live!" "As a LGBTQ ally, I extend my gratitude to those who make sacrifices for our country and continue to pledge my unwavering support to them". Thousands of transgender Americans are already in the military. Why?
"Donald Trump's tweets are not self-executing in this context", Kilar said.
The open acceptance of transgender individuals in the military was introduced by President Barack Obama.
There are two sides on the new ban, but both agree they don't think the transgender ban has anything to do with the cost of health care. He threatened legal action if Wednesday's decision is not reversed.
Trump stated the reason for the ban is due to, "the tremendous medical costs and disruption that transgender in the military would entail".
