The lesbian cadet who quit West Point in protest over “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” and had sought to rejoin says she's abandoned the effort, the AP reported.

Katherine Miller said on Wednesday that she accepted the academy's rejection for re-admission.

“Although I am deeply saddened that I will not be readmitted to West Point, I understand and respect the decision,” Miller, 21, said in a statement.

She said she plans to join the military through officer candidate school after graduating from Yale University, which she's now attending.

Miller, who was the ninth-ranked cadet in her class of 1,157, resigned last August, two years into her program, in protest of the military's ban on gay and bisexual troops serving openly.

“At present, I find military service to be incompatible with personal values,” she wrote in her letter of resignation, which included the announcement that she's gay.

During her time at the school, the policy banned her from revealing her sexual orientation to classmates.

“In short, I have lied to my classmates and compromised my integrity and my identity by adhering to existing military policy,” she said.

Her departure before returning for her third year means she doesn't owe the government service or compensation for the education, training and benefits she received.

Miller, who came out gay at 17, is taking gay-related curriculum at Yale University not offered at West Point. She's also found a vibrant gay community at her new school.
