    My life plan was to serve in the military as a career. A medical condition prevented me. Want to try again?

    Then it shouldn't be catering to the sensitivities of those that can't handle serving with homosexuals.

    Seeing as how I'm paying for it, I'd say I have a pretty damn good case for having a say as to what goes on with it.

    Correct. We need to stop catering to those who find homosexuals as something other than worthy people who should be applauded for wanting to serve their country.

    Exactly. So, your or anyone elses sensitivites to homosexuals is of no concern. Move on. Do your job and they do theirs and there should be no problem. it is and awlays has been about on the job behavior. expecting people to behave as mature, professionals is not too much to ask for.

    LOL, somehow I don't think this was an issue for Hannibal, Patton, or the Spartans.

    I know there's plenty of "awareness" here, as message boards are like narcotics for the liberal and gay community. But I know that it isn't the prevalent topic in the barracks of Fort Anywhere right now. Islamic extremists planting themselves within the ranks, and their inability to do anything about it.....now that's another story.

    They probably didn't care.

    Hannibal, Patton and the Spartans are fighting wars int the 21st century?

    You are right, most soldiers and sailors have more important things to worry about than if another soldier or sailor is gay...

    The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

    An appeaser is one who feeds a crocodile, hoping it will eat him last.
