    But guess what is:

    FOR ALL ENLISTEES OR REENLISTEES:
    I understand that many laws, regulations, and military customs
    will govern my conduct and require me to do things under this
    agreement that a civilian does not have to do. I also understand
    that various laws, some of which are listed in this agreement,
    directly affect this enlistment/reenlistment agreement. Some
    examples of how existing laws may affect this agreement are
    explained in paragraphs 10 and 11. I understand that I cannot
    change these laws but that Congress may change these laws, or
    pass new laws, at any time that may affect this agreement, and that
    I will be subject to those laws and any changes they make to this
    agreement.
    I further understand that:
    Can we be done with this ridiculous contract business now?

    That comment was in response to your comment that DADT was part of the enlistment contract.

    You mean like forcing a group of people live under a more stringent set of rules than the rest of the military? I agree, that is something we should never do.

    By the way that link you cited even said that if everything fell right you still don't have the votes in the senate to repeal DADT....How do you feel about that?

    It says right in the contract that Congress can change the laws and the military has to abide by it. I think we're done.
