Not unless Liberals are demoted to history. They want women and open gays in front line combat. Ridiculous.

The problem is that even a non-front-line job can become front-line if the enemy chooses to attack.

To me, this looks like a way for gays to get all the benefits of serving without taking any of the risks.

I can already see our enemies trying to sue us through some goofy UN “World Court” for exposing their soldiers to HIV. Germ warfare. It’s a crazy world out there.

This proposal sounds too much like compromise to me.

Surely, the put down for this initiative will be that lack of front line service will be held against gays in promotions.

It will, and don't call me Shirley.

So the conservatives have already given up on repealing it? Now they are just asking for a few exemptions?

Why not just reinstate the DADT policy as before?

Are there any active soldiers on here who can tell us how often a soldier is tested for HIV?

As a 22-year veteran (U.S.N) I would like to see this repeal. I am not against gay people; they just don’t belong in the Navy and they can live their life as they like as long as they leave me alone. I must admit however, I always had my doubts about some of the women in the Navy - a little too butch for me.

I sure wouldn’t want any Hiv/aids casualty getting blood on me. If they should become injured, who will go to their aid.

but wait, they are pushing for women in the frontline combat units, but exempting gays? which way is it gonna be, guys?

everyone exempted from combat duty means some other poor sucker gets to take his place

Not just HIV, either. Hepatitus B and C, that nasty super staph infection without cure, plus all the other nasty STDs.

....opponents pointed out that allowing homosexuals to serve in the military could create serious morale problems as it would force heterosexual soldiers to live in close quarters with homosexuals who might be attracted to them.

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.
