    No you won't. You should learn about the military before you insult the fine people who serve.

    For the record, I'm currently serving on active duty. Here's how I see it:

    At the small unit level in the Army, we are anticipating the change in policy. I doubt that it effects us very seriously in our day-to-day operations in CONUS or deployed.

    I personally have never known any Soldier to be discharged under DADT. I do think there are gay servicemembers serving now and they know to keep it quiet. Will they "come out" if the policy is overturned? I doubt it, but I could be wrong.

    I currently command a 110 man unit (all males); if DADT is done away with, I'll simply inform my troops that the same EO policies that exist now prohibiting racist and sexist remarks also apply to gays. No big deal.

    I really don't care either way, but if the Brits and IDF can pull it off, then I doubt it will be that earth-shattering for us. I guess I'll find out soon enough.

    First off thank you for current serving our country. And I believe that if DADT were overturned your example should be the way it is handled. It is reasonable and tells your soldiers that you will not tolerate any such action against their fellow troops.
