    This is why the military moved Congress to create the Military Readiness Enhancement Act in 2005. DADT was a burden because the "tell" part hurt us. But I will add this part.....

    A 2006 Zogby International poll of military members found that 26% favor of gays serving in the military, 37% opposed, and 37% expressed no preference or were unsure.
    While it may be helpful to insist that the majority of American people want a sexually tolerant military, those that actually find it honorable to serve hold differnet opinions. In other words, those that favor it, run from national duty....so **** their opinion.

    you don't get it, because you've never served in the military.

    If a company commander accepts an invitation to one enlisted man's wedding, he has to accept the invitations to every enlisted man's wedding, under his command. If he misses one, then he can be accused of showing favoritism, which will get his ass in a crack. Get it now.

    It would be like PFC Joe Blow saying, "Hey, Captain, let's go have a beer", and the captain saying, "sure, let's go". Fraternization doesn't just involve sexual activity, as far as the DoD is concerned. Had you a few moments of military service, you would already know that. Even Redress will tell you that.

    As long as he didn't show any special treatment towards them on duty, I wouldn't see the problem.
    Its a formal function. There is a difference between going to a wedding, and being drinking buddies.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    By that logic, a company commander can sleep with enlisted personel and as long as he/she doesn't show favoratism, it's ok.

    A social event, outside of the unit is different.
