Vets protest plan opening military to homosexuals

Vets protest plan opening military to homosexuals

Officer requests command relief over scheduled 'behavior modifications'

Veterans and active duty personnel alike are reacting harshly to the news that Barack Obama has signed the repeal of the "Don't ask, don't tell" policy, and one much-needed leader already could be lost to the military.

A lieutenant colonel in the U.S. Army has confirmed to WND that he is asking to be relieved of the command of his squadron because of the new policy. And former combat personnel are telling WND that they are continuing to keep the pressure on Congress to reverse itself.

"I have already requested through my chain of command that I be relieved of command of my squadron prior to new policy implementation on grounds that my personal beliefs don't permit me to force the coming 'behavior modifications' training and other inevitable policies on my soldiers," the officer, whose name has been withheld, wrote to WND.

The statement highlights the question of whether soldiers themselves are ready to go along with the controversial social experiment imposed by Congress, or whether they'll carefully withdraw from command positions and troop ranks, pack their bags and leave the military.

Members of the military or veterans who have concerns about the policy change can send their stories to WND.

Earlier, during congressional debate over the radical Obama plan to make the military more "gay"-friendly, officials reported that 12.6 percent of the personnel, some 264,600 soldiers, said they would leave sooner than planned because of the change. Another quarter of a million said that would be among their options when considering their careers.

Another member of the military, whose name also is being withheld, warned that group showers, lack of doors on bathroom stalls and no doors in dressing areas now become issues.

"Who do I sue if I feel harassed? The drill instructor? His commanding officer? The post/base commander? Or does my harasser suffer a fall going down the stairs? Or from a high point in the obstacle course? How many harassment complaints until the pervert is washed out? How many witnesses to the event are required?" he asked.

I was talking to a friend on the phone the other day when this passed, and I said that the open faggots would probably fall down the stairs when this was implemented, but he said our troops would not do something like that. Well, here it is, from the troops themselves.

NO FAGS IN THE MILITARY, PERIOD!!

America! It's about

★ FREEDOM! ★

★ Estimated Value – PRICELESS! ★

The DADT will never be repealed or over ruled because there aren't enough politicians with the balls to do It

The military is no place for social engineering, and this policy is clearly causing problems with morale.

The military has one objective; to defend our country, with a high degree of readiness. Period.

I’m not sure how valid this information is:

http://www.ehow.com/how_5863906_resign-army-officer-commission.html

...or how wise a course of action it is. But count me among the ranks of Army officers who will not serve alongside openly gay soldiers. Fortunately for me the clock is pretty short.

Back in 1966, while in Basic, we served KP at an outprocessing homo barracks.

We were warned of things we might see and were forbidden to laugh or make any jokes about it. We did see things and I hope to never see them again!

Well, gee, I thought I heard on foxnews that 70% of American’s think this is a good idea. Think it was on Bret’s show, but, can’t remember which one on the panel said that.

Expect to a return to prosecutions for misbehavior ~ rather than simply letting these guys out of the service on a General Discharge.

They cannot behave themselves ~

I applaud all the service members who stand on principle and would rather resign than serve given a repeal of DADT.

This however, plays right into the libs plans.

All service members of conscience would voluntarily leave, opening the door for field promotions of spineless, political opportunists who will do whatever they are told to do regardless of legality or morality.

Making the Army bleed to death without fighting back in Afghanistan wasn't enough.

I don't know if anyone here has been to “Re eduction camp”, but I have. I worked for a company that had a Gay HR agenda. It's disgusting. "Soldier, just because your officers hump each other, you must still respect them and follow orders. Remember, Three is not a crowd, especially in an Officers tent."

The only hope the military has is that the GO drag out the implementation of the then law. I do not hold out to much hope for that.

Because of the decision to allow homosexuals to openly serve, Many Church pastors I know are counseling their young men not to serve.

It’s a sad day for the country. A sad day...

After 24 years in the active duty military I never thought DON ME NOW OUR GAY APPAREL would mean stand by for uniform inspection. Sorry I disagree with this repeal to the core of my military heart and dread the day WHEN it brings violence amongst MY troops, but levity was required.

The warrant.

Correct. It always comes back to us. That is the reason we could, if necessary, survive a thousand obamas. But we cannot and will not survive the people who put the obamas in power. I believe that it was Cicero that bsically said a Nation can survive anything but its traitors. And that is what happened to us in 2006, 2008, and 2010. Traitors to America put Democrats in positions of power in 2006. Traitors to America put Democrats in positions of power in 2008. Traitors to America returned some Democrats and elected others and re-elected some of their surrogates to power in 2010,including but not limited to: The Dearling of Alaska, John Mc Cain, Coons in Delaware. Boxer in California, Reid in Nevada.

The propaganda especially concerning obama now is,"I was fooled". Baloney! The one thing obama made clear when he was campaiging was what he intended to do to the United States. And every sob that voted for him agreed with him on this.

The perverts are sodomizing the country and the military. ABout 1% of the population now has access to the object of their deviant obsession. This is far more disgusting then young women being forced to cohabitate with men—at least the attractions are normal.

That would be where the ‘little darlings’ are put together on their way OUT of the Service.

Back in ‘my navy’, they would get to serve some time in the Brig, under the watchful eye of the Marine Guards and upon conviction, would get some kind of “Bad Paper”.
Oh, I am sure there was not much chance for ‘fraternization’ either, while in custody...

Just going from my Air Force boot camp experience when separating someone from the service, it could take days or in some cases weeks for the paperwork to get done. Those who were being separated due to being gay or other perversions were segregated in their own barracks at that time. Not so by the late 70s. One of the men in our flight injured his knee and was being processed out. When we got our first break some of our guys went to see him. He said he had to break one of his crutches over some fruit’s head who wouldn’t take no for an answer. Still think it was strange for a fruit to join due to us not having a draft anymore. This was way before DATD.
