    when your talking about gays in the military especially aboard ship I believe people that have experience are a plus on the issue.........Since you have none you know nothing about it...........

    Even Redress has some experience but she was in a squadron that deployed on a air craft carrier, that is a floating city with all the comforts of home, hardly the life of the destroyer sailors........

    That's why the overwhelming majority of the military say they don't have a problem with gays serving in the military.

    See...Navy.....most servicemen and servicewomen today are not as close minded as you and your swift-boat buddies were back in your day.

    Then if possible you would have no problem with the military voting on the issue secret ballot huh? That would settle it and you would lose big time......From my contacts I would say about 70-30 against maybe more in the Navy........

    I would even be willing to bet a lot of "Feel good Liberals" like you in the military in a secret ballot would vote no..............

    Are you suggesting that people become closet bigots when they are able to vote in secrecy?

    President Obama will ask Congress Wednesday night to repeal the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy that bars gays and lesbians from openly serving in, White House Senior Adviser David Axelrod told CNN.

    The request will be included in the president's State of the Union address, Axelrod said.

    The issue has been a source of contention for heavy hitters on both sides of the issue, who are lining up for a fight.

    In a message to Pentagon leadership, Gen. John Shalikashvili, former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said it's time to repeal the law.

    "As a nation built on the principal of equality, we should recognize and welcome change that will build a stronger more cohesive military," said Shalikashvili. His letter was sent out Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-New York, who supports repealing the policy
    Long overdue!
