It's in the actual policy against homosexuals. So are you saying that had no information on why homosexuals are not allowed in the military?
United States Code: Title 10,654. Policy concerning homosexuality in the armed forces | LII / Legal Information Institute
Notice this part:
It is actually in the policy, and I'm pretty sure in the page 13 regarding homosexual conduct in the military (although this I could be wrong about).(14) The armed forces must maintain personnel policies that exclude persons whose presence in the armed forces would create an unacceptable risk to the armed forces’ high standards of morale, good order and discipline, and unit cohesion that are the essence of military capability.
And it is taught, whether you realize it was taught to you or not. Otherwise, most of those who are against repealing DADT wouldn't use the almost exact phrasing for doing so.
"A woman is like a teabag, you never know how strong she is until she gets in hot water." - Eleanor Roosevelt
Keep your religion out of other people's marriages.
Again, I never received that directive during my 12 years. Nor, did I issue any such directive as a senior NCO. I doubt very seriously, that you'll find anyone that did.
What the hell do I know. Right?
I support removing DADT but believe me its because I care more about my fellow service members who may be gay, and the former service members I know, some who are my friends, who are gay and were found out.
Do you really think that the removal of a Company Commander, platoon sergeant, or any other valuable service member is not harmful to national security? Of course the Army and military is smart enough to make sure that on one is irreplaceable, but it doesn't mean their replacement is instant and their replacement is just as good.
And seriously if you argument against DADT is only based on you don't want people being smug to you than for God's sake grow a spine.
Also I edited my post earlier, probably while you were replying to the original, so could you go back and look at it again?
