In June 2016, Secretary of Defense Ash Carter announced the repeal of the ban on transgender people serving in the military. In August 2017, President Donald Trump announced a reversal of Secretary Carter’s decision, which would place a ban on transgender people serving in the military. This teaching case puts the reader into the position of the leadership of a U.S. Navy Sailor deployed in Afghanistan. The Sailor’s documentation states the Sailor is female; in person the Sailor appears to be male. The Sailor had been living in male barracks and meeting male physical and grooming standards for months. Command leadership must determine what to do with the Sailor. The case study focuses on ethics, leadership, diversity management, and communication.
