    There are hundreds of laws in the military that are in effect. They change all the time. The specific laws aren't in the contracts military members sign for that very reason. Because the military changes them when they feel like it.

    And? So Congress doesn't get any say over how the military operates. More than a little impractical.

    Besides, the ones that count, you know, the people actually in the military, are okay with it.

    Not for much longer!

    Again, changes. This is just one the many laws that the military will change. And like the other laws before it, it doesn't mean the military is breaking any contract because the law isn't in the contract!

    I can speak for myself and I can honestly say if Gays could serve openly when I enlisted I would not have done it..........Sure you can change laws but when they directly affect people serving as is the case here the changes should be made I suggested.............

    Fine if that is the case then give the guys who signed up prior the option of resigning and compensate them accordingly for the length of service................No Problem

And they certainly don't get compensation.
    Wait...any uniform, or just work uniforms?

    No, they don't get to break their contract, just like the government can't.
