One more time - Homos are already allowed to serve in all branches of the military where they serve on the front lines and, unfortunately, live in close quarters with normal people.
DADT just restricts them from being open, flamboyant and advertising their abnormal perversion.
Every man in combat is a potential blood donor.”””
Liberals are bent on destroying every institution our great nation has (or used to have)
