Dear [Title/Name],

As members of a research team with the Palm Center, a research center at the University of California,
Los Angeles, we are writing to you because we have identified you as a retired US military officer who
may have input to offer about the repeal of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy.

As you may know, that repeal took effect on September 20, 2011. The Palm Center is now conducting a
major study of the impact of the repeal. In order to conduct as broad and as thorough a study as possible
on the impact of repeal, we are seeking input from a wide variety of experts and interested parties, and
would appreciate your help. We plan to incorporate into our conclusions any verifiable evidence of any
impact of repeal on military readiness. We’re hoping you might agree to share your thoughts on this
matter with our researchers, including knowledge you may have or stories you may have heard that may
speak to this issue.

It would be very helpful to us to be able to speak with you, whether or not you are directly aware of
evidence about the impact of repeal. If you are willing to talk with our researchers, please contact Dr.
Stacie R. Furia
using any of the contact information listed below. She will set up a brief interview with a
member of our research team, which you can expect will take about ten to fifteen minutes.

Thank you for your consideration on this important matter. We are sure you will agree that assessing this
significant change in personnel regulations is a worthy subject for academic research, and we sincerely
hope you are able to add your voice to this study.

Sincerely,
The “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” Repeal Impact Research Team
Palm Center, UCLA School of Law
