  • Good for politics. Bad for their Gay soldiers personal safety. I can see a lot of hate crimes happening because of it.

  • Why can't people just let everyone be themselves? It would be fine with me if being Gay was out in the open, accepted and then just let go as normal instead of some big hot-button issue. I would love to see other more important issues discussed. The Military will survive with gays ,I'm sure.

  • It's not going to happen anytime soon but when it does I feel sorry for the men and women who have to take all the crap that will come from it.

  • Gays are already in the military. They are not banned, as long as they don't break the laws on the bases and they are not hurting morale. If a soldier is kicked for being Gay the military HAS to prove that they are hurting morale or have broken a rule. http://www.airforcetimes.com/news/2008/05/airforce_dontask_052208/

  • It's a good thing.


     I thought the military was all about discipline, service, following a plan and doing what one was commanded/instructed to do? If there are members who can not abide by the rules and treat fellow members respectfully, they can be dishonorably drummed out. Act civil, follow the rules, or accept the consequences-just like at any other job, school, social situation. No excuses, it's beyond time.
