He's not disobeying; the directives released on Friday per the Presidential Memorandum don't take place until early next year (month depends on the instance). SECDEF has until then to develop a plan and/or advise a change in policy in writing to the President:

Here's a Military Times article on it that is clearer:

Quote

Once the panel completes its analysis, Mattis will provide his recommendation to the president after consultation with the DHS. However, the current policy with regards to already serving transgender service members will remain in place for the time being.

“Our focus must always be on what is best for the military’s combat effectiveness leading to victory on the battlefield,” Mattis said.

SECDEF's statements on this are exactly the same language out of the Memorandum.

It's good to see the adults aren't afraid to put Donny's foolishness aside and play by the rules.

Something about serial dodger Donnie barring other citizens from serving really galls me.

And for what? Remember how the military was going to fall apart because of expanded roles for women? Or how gays would just wreak all kinds of havoc?

That's the thing about stupid people. They're reliable.

Eric and Donald Trump Jr. Are Cowards Just Like Their Daddy — From A Military Family Member

There are many reasons why Donald Trump should keep his mouth shut, and cower in the shadows where he and his family belong after making disparaging remarks about the Khan family earlier this week. However, here are the two biggest ones. The first is Eric Trump. The second is Donald Trump Jr. We all know that Donald himself is a coward who grew up entitled and managed to dodge the military; he’s dodged everything in life: taxes, debts, paying people for hard work they’ve done.

According to Trump biographer Michael D’Antonio in his book The Truth About Trump, Trump told him, “I always thought I was in the military,” because he attended an elite private prep school while he was a teen. He later had multiple deferments during the Vietnam War, and had a doctor give him a medical exemption when his number was called... for heel spurs. What a coward.When this idiot had the nerve to say that John McCain wasn’t a war hero “because he was captured.” Yeah, that’s a direct quote. He went on to say, “I don’t like people who were captured.”

Donald Trump has not one, but two, able-bodied, of age, gun-loving, animal-shooting, God and “love of country” sons, whose only boots that have ever hit the ground were made by Prada... and on Park Avenue.

Mattis just contradicted Trump on N Korea as well.  Trump is becoming more impotent by the day.
