While we are all up in arms, how about signing the petition from the Victory Institute to support Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James Amos.
The purpose of this petition is not to speak for or against the repeal of the law, but to counter recent efforts calling for Gen. Amos resignation. He has served our country with honor for 38 years, and his dedication to the Marine Corps is without question. His statements were founded upon the concerns of the men and women who are directly affected by the law. However, Gen. Amos stated that if Dont Ask, Dont Tell is in fact repealed, the Marine Corps would get in step and move smartly to implement the changes.
The input of all branches of the Armed Forces is essential in a matter that could prove detrimental to the defense of this nation. Statements such as Gen. Amos should be welcomed, not silenced.
