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."
If they get rid of the DADT they would then have to address the UCMJ.
FM 27-1 Chptr 6 Administrative Separations
REASONS FOR SEPARATIONS
Soldiers may be discharged from the Army before their normal expiration of term of service (ETS). Reasons for such discharge include--
* Conviction by a civilian court.
* Unsatisfactory performance.
* Hardship and dependency.
* Void and voidable enlistments or inductions.
* Alcohol or drug abuse.
* Conscientious objection.
* The good of the service.
* The convenience of the government.
* Fraudulent entry.
It's like we have a choice between the party of stall or the party of crawl.
I watched the hearings of the Armed Services Committee this morning on DADT held on Tuesday and Senator McCain had a listing of 1100 Flag and General Officers that were against the repeal of DADT...That sort of trumps Mullins and Gates.......Looks to me this is going to be a fight between the Right and the left in the Senate and I was glad to see Senator Webb From Va. a democrat step up and join the people on the right on his issue..........
