    Kept his mouth shut? So, you subscribe to the idea that gays in the military should lie about who they are? This sounds like how whites used to talk about blacks.

    The truth is this stupid law has never been followed as it was intended. Most of those discharged did not out themselves. I heard a Lt Colonel last night talk about how a civilian outted him. Do you think a Lt Col will be missed? Do you think he can easily be replaced?

    So, which causes more trouble? To keep them or to kick them out?

    This is the 21st century. Evolve people.

    DADT has done much more to hurt the military than help it.

    We destabilized the region when we overthrew the Iraqi government, terrorists already had a haven there, tens of thousands of innocents are dead as a result of our intervention, and you don't honor fallen warriors by increasing their ranks with actions that get more of our warriors killed.

    Don't act dumb with me. You were in the Marines, right? If the top General gives an order tell me, how many have to obey him? I'll save you the embarassment... ALL OF THEM! It never matters what all the underlings vote is. The two top dogs want that law repealed. So, repealed it will get.

I would be willing to say that most of them have very little idea what the troops are feeling exspecially if they were not enlisted first.
    President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."
