    Yeah...be sure to read that link of Navy Prides:

    Military Attitudes
    73 percent of military personnel are comfortable with lesbians and gays (Zogby International, 2006).
    The younger generations, those who fight America's 21st century wars, largely don't care about whether someone is gay or not-and they do not link job performance with sexual orientation.
    One in four U.S. troops who served in Afghanistan or Iraq knows a member of their unit who is gay (Zogby, 2006).
    The Public Overwhelmingly Supports Lifting the Ban
    Majorities of weekly churchgoers (60 percent), conservatives (58 percent), and Republicans (58 percent) now favor repeal (Gallup, 2009).
    Seventy-five percent of Americans support gays serving openly - up from just 44 percent in 1993 (ABC News/Washington Post, 2008).
    Ban Hurts Military Readiness
    The U.S. must recruit and retain the greatest number of the best and brightest-especially during two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Well the status quo worked great in my 20 years of service but then we did not have to worry about some female accusing us of sexual harrassment if we looked at her the wrong way because there were no females aboard ships.......God knows we had our problems at sea on ships that were not floating cities with all the comforts of home but that was not one of them.........

    And as far as gays usually every couple of months one could not control himself and was put on report, court martialed and discharged with a undesireable or bad conduct discharge.....I heard they are giving gays guys these days honorable discharges....what is with that?

    Yeah I kind of do..You never serving don't know what kind of pressure these naval aviators are under, especially in war time.......Ask John McCain he might tell you what its like flying off the decks of those carriers and coming back to the states years later...........You work hard and you play hard........Until this one woman it was all partying men and women both.....

    If you did not have women aboard ship then you tell me how there can be sexual harrassment?
