Gay Veteran Dan Choi, Ousted Under 'Don't Ask,' Tries to Re-Enlist in Army
ABC News ^ | Oct. 19, 2010 | LUIS MARTINEZ

Posted on 10/19/2010 5:44:49 PM PDT by ozguy

Iraq War veteran and former Army Lt. Dan Choi was discharged from the National Guard in July after outing himself as a gay man, in violation of "don't ask, don't tell."

But with the controversial military policy no longer in effect after a federal judge issued an injunction, Choi headed to a Times Square military recruitment center in New York Tuesday to re-enlist.

"Today is a great day we can all celebrate," he said after filling out the paperwork. "I'm very excited to be in service to this country."

Isn’t it grand when our national security is just a toy for deviants to play with.

Spare us. You're excited to be in service of your warped orifice-obsessed subculture.

I'm sure he's also very excited to be surrounded by many athletic, fitted young men.

Hey,this is really cool. Do you think this male, horn dog that I now am can put on a wig and enlist as a woman? Its my constitutional right, is it not, to be posted abroad with a squad of women in the back country, all alone, and ready for action?

I’d suggest at this point, go ahead and draft all the fags, then, since we need to deal with Iran, we’d have a front line...........

Ya know, when I was in the Army my hetero sex life was never a topic of conversation. Why don’t they keep their stupid mouths shut? No one wants to hear about it. If one of my troops were talking about their sex life gay or straight I would have put my boot up their ass!

No kidding. An entire military policy gets overturned by ONE judge? No fight? No argument? No action taken?

I was thinking the same thing - enlisted men are called enlisted for a reason. To become an officer, an officer is given a commission - that is why they are called "commissioned officers".

I would like to see them make him go back through boot camp, and start him out again as an E-1 Private...

I get the feeling he likes being special. To rid him of that attitude, he needs the enlisted boot camp treatment and to start like again at the very bottom of the enlisted ranks...

When fascism comes to America it will be carrying a pink swastika wrapped in a rainbow flag. They will still be wearing the brown shirts they wore in Germany in the 1930s. Google: “The Pink Swastika” Learn your history or repeat it. Ooops, too late.

“To become an officer, an officer is given a commission”

Unfortunately, Choi can (without enlisting) apply for reappointment to his previous rank....that is how it works with former officers. IF a board (which will be subject to pressure) approves his request for reappointment.....then this “man” could be back in a commissioned status.

I’m NOT advocating what I’m about to write, I’m merely predicting. Unless he is put in a “safe” area....he will be “fragged” like in Vietnam. He is a fool to push this.

Sadly, not only will he eventually be “fragged” but before that happens he will run numerous careers by filling repeated “discrimination” complaints that authorities will have to act on. When some good NCOs and Officers are ruined by this individual, it just makes him a bigger target by those troops that will be angered. This is really a very bad idea.

I hope the policy is reinstated by a higher court before this disaster can unfold. I senseless loss of life and careers so a homosexual can make a political statement.

I just took the following quote from Wikipedia:

“Choi served as a National Guardsman with the 1st Battalion, 69th Infantry, based in Manhattan.”

The 69th Infantry? Oh how terrible appropriate.

Yeah, and then when he's injured or killed watch the media make him into a huge hero. He'll be the next Harvy Milk. No thank you. Keep him hidden away somewhere in some do-nothing job stateside and we'll never hear from him again.

The LIAR from the NY Army National Guard will not win. he was NOT put out because he chooses to be and act gay. He was RIGHTFULLY put out because he disobeyed the orders upon ALL in the military. He went and PROTESTED in UNIFORM and LIED about it and more. Playing the Gay wounded dove will not work.

Funny how, in 3 months of coverage about DADT, not one story I have seen or heard has mentioned that it was a Clinton policy, which the gay lobby worked incredibly hard to get. Strange.

Friendly fire incidents do happen from time to time in war zones...

Will he be so gay when he develops full-blown AIDS? Gays are so gross.They are the most sexually and morally- depraved individuals,other than those who have sex with children.
