nothing is stopping a gay patriot from serving his country. if he truly loves and wants to serve this country. (that means putting country above himself) he would in list and keep his mouth shut and do his job.

walking in waving a rainbow flag is not going to help anything. the people pushing this repeal couldn't care less about their country.

Wow... and I thought I was hard core.... There are plenty of people that make mistakes and go to jail/prison.. but once they have paid their debt.. they should be able to join.. it might even help some make better people.

Granted.. I also belive in the electric BENCH..

I didn't mean it in a mean way. I just think some people still view the military requirements as anyone can join and I think we should keep filtering out anyone not fit to be in there. I understand some people make mistakes, but when our national security depends on them we should always be selective. I did not mean to offend anyone.

Since when did committing a crime make you a reject of society?
Before you blow my post off tracks. I was not referring to anyone that has died for our country. I am a daughter of a Vietnam Vet so lets not go there.

Lol.. Hey I have a few uncles from my mothers side that served in the Army to avoid jail time for being bad kids and honestly it was the best thing for them. However times have changed and I think passing people thru for the sake of a body to serve is very dangerous for everyone involved. It's also not fair for the ones who serve proudly and honestly..
