It was on this day in 1993.

Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell (DADT), the official United States policy on gays serving
in the military was announced by President Bill Clinton (below). It allowed
closeted members of the military to serve, while prohibiting those in the
military who were openly gay to serve. Prior to “don’t ask, don’t tell,” there
had been an outright ban on gays in the military.

(History) – An ammunition ship explodes while being loaded in Port Chicago, California, killing 332 people on this day in 1944. The United States’ World
War II
military campaign in the Pacific was in full swing at the time. Lack of
training and poor procedures led to the disaster.

Port Chicago, about 30 miles north of San Francisco, was developed into a munitions facility when the Naval Ammunition Depot at Mare Island, CA,
could not fully supply the war effort.

(Fox News) – There are many iconic and infamous homes in Los Angeles, but
rarely do they appear on the market. That might be the reason one home in Bel
Air is attracting so much attention from potential buyers, developers, and fans alike.

Forbes reports this particular Bel Air mansion was reportedly once owned by socialite and actress Zsa Zsa Gabor, and was rumored to have been occupied
by playboy and aviator Howard Hughes, and King of Rock-and-Roll Elvis
Presley — and it’s on the market for $23.4 million.
