    I doubt it will go forward without the military investigation which will include cost of the transition.
    Thanks.

    The Military is still split on gays.

    Military leaders chime in on 'gays' serving (OneNewsNow.com)

    Lawmakers will press the military's top brass for the first time on whether they think it makes sense to lift the ban on homosexuals serving in the military.

    Admiral Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has already voiced his support of President Barack Obama's call to repeal the 1993 law which says homosexuality is incompatible with military service, but on Tuesday, Army Chief of Staff Gen. George Casey and Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Norton Schwartz will give their input to a congressional panel.

    Elaine Donnelly"I don't know about the Air Force Chief of Staff Gen. Schwartz. We don't know what his opinion is," notes Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness. "I am concerned because Gen. Casey has said diversity is the primary thing, so I'm not sure whether he will make a similar statement here or whether he will take a more rational approach."

    Donnelly adds that Marine Commandant Gen. James Conway, who will testify on Wednesday, has already said he opposes changing the policy.

    "I think the commandant will certainly address the issue the way it should be addressed," the military watchdog predicts. "And that is, 'How does this benefit the armed forces?'"
    How can you say they are "split" when we don't know their opinions as of yet?

    We will see. Those who have spoken out may be the minority. If they are holding their tongue they are probably against it or still doing their job and looking at how it will affect the military.
