    No I don't think that....The last of the issue will be when the troops survey comes back and it is heavily against allowing gays to serve openly........

    Whether I lost of not says nothing about whether I'm right or not. I'm asking you to explain your comments. Can you do that or not?

    About 10 of them during my 21 navy career, several which I was a witness and thousands more since DADT was started.............

    Not to me. So can you or can't you? Don't make this hard. Just tell if you can or not, and if you can do so.

    Even that won't be the end of the issue. The issue won't go away until it is allowed. Society will always progress, but it does take time.

    When this current generation of elderly people finally kicks the bucket, being gay will be such a non issue.

    Sometimes, I can't wait.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    A couple things:
    1) You served like 150 years ago, during the Civil War. Times have changed a bit since then.
    2) Since when do you have the right to expect things to stay the same during your entire time in the military? If a soldier enlists during peace time and then we fight a war, they aren't allowed to quit just because they wouldn't have signed up had they known they'd be called upon for war.
    Are you coming to bed?
    I can't. This is important.
    What?

    Men who are not gay and in the military and who live in off-base housing room together. What is going to stop a gay men from living with another man off-base? Personally, I don't think I would have a problem with gays in the military but I am not going to speak for everyone. I see the practical reasons for DADT. The military is a special case in my opinion.
