The military is merely preparing for the inevitable. The problem willnot be the gays. It will be the hardcore traditionalists throughout the rank structure who continue to hold strong anti-gay opinions. The same thing happened with the issues of women and blacks.
Let's get something clear. Our "job" is to train fighters and leaders so that they can fight wars and follow orders to the best of their abilities. This is what makes us professional.
Like I stated over and ****ing over and ****ing over to you and the rest.....DADT is a civilian sin. The numbers forced out rose dramatically when civilians forced us to look at the gays in the military with certain outcome. Until DADT, the military was naturally beginning to simply look the other way. It was looked down upon and expected to fly under the radar until the Clinton administration forced gays into the spotlight throughout the military and forced administrative action. We simply followed your policies...."boss."

The outcome, known as the Crittenden report, stated that “the number of cases of blackmail as a result of past investigations of homosexuals in negligible” and “no factual data exist to support the contention that homosexuals are a greater risk than heterosexuals.”i
