    Why do you believe only strait white males have should have an obligation to serve in the military, and defend the constitution? Are you also suggesting that strait white males are the only ones who deserve freedom and constitutional protection?

    Women have for years served in combat situations, especially since there are often no clear cut front lines. Here is one story:

    Defense.gov News Article: Woman Soldier Receives Silver Star for Valor in Iraq

    "...Hester led her team through the "kill zone" and into a flanking position, where she assaulted a trench line with grenades and M203 grenade-launcher rounds. She and Nein, her squad leader, then cleared two trenches, at which time she killed three insurgents with her rifle."

    i think your own point is bs.

    a large amount of the military is black,and to a lesser extent alot of gays in the military pre ending dadt.ending dadt didnt do anything for gays but allow them to wear pink shirts and tights around post without getting yelled at.

    black people and hispanic people are a large portion of our military,most the black people i knew in the army came from the poorest parts of the country,but never complained one second about serving.to them the army took them out of a situation they tried on their own to leave,and gave them an opportunity to raise their kids outside of high crime low income neighborhoods.many of them thanked everyday in the military,they got training they got a job and they got the military to move them,to them it was a fresh start,to them dying for their country so their kids could live a better life was better than dying in the ghetto so someone could steal their car.


    hispanics never figured out whu so many joined but i do know the majority of them are from peurto rico,and since im not familiar with that territory,i cant explain their reason.


    i guess im saying the military wasnt worth it for me other than serving my time,but for many people it was every bit worth it,people saw a chance to raise their families better and to better themselves for the small price of defending their country.


    take a trip to any military installation and count the white people there,i guarantee its not 100% its probably closer to 50% and 40% black and 10% light skinned hispanic,and thats counting black hispanics under black not hispanic.

    You don't have to tell me. Talk to Navy. He is the one saying the military should not be for social engineering. So things like desegregation shouldn't have happened. So according to him the military should be like it was in the 30's. Mostly strait white men. I think we should have modern inclusive military that doesn't have outdated and useless standards like you should be able to run a 4.2 40 to drive a tank or be a nuclear tech on a sub.

    if he served in the past 70 years he would know the military has not been all white,its been mixed heavily through both world wars korea and vietnam,infact im pretty sure the draft era drafted more black people than white.

    I guess when he is in gay rights threads then he should keep his yap shut since he was never raised by gay parents or had gay sex . . . . . that we know of

    thats not social engineering blacks were required to serve during the draft because they were seen at the time as lesser citizens.after the draft many stayed because even the crap pay they had then was better than what they had,and the military gave them every tool to succeed,its up to soldiers to use those tools.

    if he was in any war in the recent century black people were already there,so you cant argue social engineering.
