    This officer in your link says we need to look at other countries, then he ignores that the other countries that repealed bans on gays serving in the military saw no negative effect on their fighting strength.

    I have no compassion for my fellow servicemen? How do you come up with that?

    Actually, I give our service men and women much more credit than you do. I know, from personal experience and you probably do too, that people can do their jobs well and be comfortable working with and living with people who might be different than themselves. They've been doing it for years already. People got over their prejudices and learned they could accept blacks and then women and already homosexuals. I'm sure you served with some... whether you knew it or not.

    I don't want our service men/women's lives to be put at more risk when one of their trained team mates is suddenly taken away from them, by the sex police, leaving them more vulnerable. You know those taken away are not immediately replaced thus exposing all to a much higher chance of being ijured and killed. Think about it.

    I personally know one two active duty personnel who have stated to me that if DADT is repealed they will ETS.

    Well, there may be some of that. If they leave, good riddance! The service will be better for it. Some may just be shooting their mouths off. To throw away their pension would be fool hardy for such an emotional reason. We shall see what we shall see. I predict there will be hardly any taking that path.

    I know people that would have signed up except the DADT kept them from doing it.

    Are you talking about the 27% that oppose lifting the ban?

    What about the interests of the 73% that favor lifting the ban?

    I don't believe you were in the Navy, you might feel different.....I don't think any guy aboard ship would want a gay guy sleeping inches away from him.....

    Cut it out with the black example, it is old, stale and been disproven beause blacks are a race of people and gays ae a class of people defined by their sexual preference...........
