be humble for you are made of earth; be noble for you are made of stars
There is no question that you can always find exceptions to almost every rule or situation so what exactly is your point. You believe that by posting one case that strengthens your position?
This really is a frustrating thread in that nothing I say is going to change your mind or vice versa. We have an all volunteer military and a low that has been on the books for 17 years. Now all of a sudden such passion again but mostly by people who I don't believe are serving or have served.
I know you don't agree with DADT and want gays to serve openly, the question is why such passion over this issue and why not just let the military and Congress decide?
Just like I sypathyze with a lot of things that dont have the answer you are looking for.
no one is saying you cant be gay and serve in the military.
no one is saying you cant talk about the ones you love to fellow soldiers, but you should be choosy with whom you speak to, and how far you want to take it.
I think my point is furthered by this ridiculous picture of Captain "look at me" with the tape on his mouth, in uniform.
theres a limit to everything, unfortunatly,
because as you see by the pictures, when pushed most "openly proud" gays will react in a way unbecoming of a soldier.
It's their passive nature.

silly, being gay doesn't make you the opposite gender.
