    I doubt you'll get a reasonable answer.

    When asked when he last saw active duty, his response is "I live 10 miles from a military base!"

    And if there is ever a gay Navy, it should let straights serve openly too.

    I love the way you have changed the subject from the topic of the thread...............
    No, you did.

    That point is irrelevant to what I quoted from you.

    Nobody should have to live a secret life just to have the same rights as everyone else.

    Would you say we could discriminate against, say, Catholics? They can keep their religion secret too, even pretend to be a different one. Should they be required to?

    Have a good laugh but you failed to mention that I worked for the Navy for 21years after I retired from the military on a daily basis dealing with the officer and enlistedmen on air craft carriers here at the Puget Sound Naval Shipyard........Laugh that one off........

    Which made it very easy for the military to segregate them into their own units.

    Since they can't spot the gay ones, they have DADT.

    As far as your statement I have no idea what your talking about........

    Huh?

    How are these 2 situations NOT similar:

    1) Sailor Sam has to cover for Sailor Sally because she is pregnant.

    2) Sailors Sam, Sally, Steve, Scott and Seth have to go on a mission designed for 6, with only 5, because the Navy kicked sailor Samantha out for being gay. There is no immediate replacement with Samantha's level of training and experience. Oh yeah, sailor Samantha was the squad leader.
