Venable partner and retired Navy Rear Admiral Jamie Barnett joined two retired generals to urge the different military branches to comply with Department of Defense (DOD) rules affecting transgender personnel. In August, the DOD issued a regulation eliminating some of the provisions banning service by transgender personnel, however the branches have not yet complied with the regulation.

On November 26, 2014, The Hill, Military Times, and the Advocate noted Admiral Barnett's statement on the issue.
