    I can only hope this ancient policy goes away.
    Actually, as Commander in Chief of the armed forces, all Obama has to do to end DADT is to issue an executive order ending it.

    What are you talking about?

    The UCMJ is Title 10, Chapter 47 of the United States Code.

    It's statutory law, passed by Congress and signed by the President.

    No he can't because doing so then any open Gay Person in the Military will be subject to Section 925 Art. 125 this is why DADT came into being.

    Really so may I ask you how long have you been working for the DoD and at the Pentagon huh.

    Question do any of you actually know what Section 925 Art. 125 is huh. Or better yet do any of you know how the comp. came between Mr. Clinton/USSC/DoD for DADT.

    Before any of you shot off your mouths I suggest you go and read what Section 925 Art 125 is then we can talk.
