Being ex military I don’t think this is the catastrophe many would believe except in a political way (it’s a loss for our side and yes the American people). Soldiers have their own way of handling these things and those of you who served well know what I mean.

Life can be made miserable for undesirables in ways that the Msgts,Chiefs and Gunnys will never know about let alone the officers.

I agree. I live in a neighborhood with active and retired military. At a recent neighborhood Christmas party, DADT came up.

Laughing like crazy, they all told of owning a pink t shirt worn under BDUs that read Don’t Ask Don’t Tell. Even the married military couples confessed to wearing them.

It’s an Air Force inside joke. None I know intend to retire or leave.

Until the sensitivity trainers and command emphasis on “Kunbayah” take hold.

I agree with you voodoo. The UCMJ prohibits service members from engaging in sexual activity with one another. So, you will not have sodomy in the barracks. In addition, a DI can now ask a recruit if he is gay, when he could not before. The recruit has to be truthful or face discipline. Just because he cannot be discharged does not mean that he has to be accepted. Really, this may not be very good for gays.

Well, whatever those ways were, they will get you court-martialed. This is about political correctness and changing the military culture away from what it was.

That is right, so now all the Gays will have to wear pink Uniforms.

It will be very uncomfortable for them now. Before you suspected, but now.....
