    What, you expect him to find a credible source with proof there are no sources?

    I personally hope that Congress repeals this.

    The Navy seems like an attractive option once I finish grad school.

    It's either that or 10 years of public service work at a subsistence income.

    The veterans on this forum don't all agree with you. Speak for yourself, as many of the vets here think not only is DADT repeal coming, but that it will work.

    Dude, If you are thinking of joining the navy..why bother finishing grad school? go ahead and apply. if you get picked up then the Navy will pay for you to finish your grad degree.

    I'm gay. I'm not going to join the mlitary while there is a risk of people finding out and then kicking me out. If DADT didn't exist, then I very likely would have joined before I began grad school.

    Bottom line is the votes are not there in the Congress to repeal DADT...People are up for reelection in November in red states and it would be suicide to repeal the law. Thank God for that....

    By the way, no one has claimed to my knowledge that this meant an immediate change or was the end of any process. Nice try though.
