Meanwhile here on the earthly realm, I’m going to pull my girl out of Young Marines if this passes, although the USMC leadership itself is clearly on the good side of this. But they don’t make the rules. I will lose all interest in grooming her for a military career, for which she seems pretty well suited.

A gent told me a while back that he would pull his son out of a CAP cadet program if something like this happened, but I don't know how serious he was. I could see a number of parents find this DADT repeal to be the last straw as far as Young Marines, CAP or Army Guard Explorer programs.

I will not pull her out right away as the Young Marine staff is composed of some of the finest individuals I have ever had a chance to meet personally (not an exaggeration). They clearly are a wonderful influence on her and she has a couple good friends there as well (better quality people than she generally meets at school). But when she gets a little older and it gets closer to “choose a career” time we will have to reevaluate. I hope the CAP and other cadet programs can also continue to impart favorable experiences and good values for now.
