American combat troops will get sensitivity training directly on the battlefield about the militarys new policy on gays instead of waiting until they return to home base in the United States, the senior enlisted man in Afghanistan said Thursday.
The Pentagon is launching an extensive force-wide program to ease the process of integrating open homosexuals into the ranks, including into close-knit fighting units.
Army Command Sgt. Maj. Marvin Hill, the top enlisted man in Afghanistan where 100,000 U.S. troops are deployed, said that the sessions on respecting gays rights will go right down to the forward operating bases, where troops fight Taliban militants.
I have heard about the training that will be forthcoming to the battlefield, Sgt. Hill told Pentagon reporters via a teleconference from Kabul.
We will take our directions from the Department of Defense, from the secretary of defense, the chairman, as well as the service chiefs of each service. Our plan is to take their direction, and were going to execute that training right here on the battlefield.
No unit is exempted, he said.

The troops will be laughing horselaughs to themselves at this.
That should make for some interesting YouTube video...if YouTube permits it of course.
The troops should flip the bird to whoever is holding these so-called “sensitivity training” sessions. Then they should walk out.
What’s Gates and Obummer going to do....court-martial the entire Army and Marine Corps?
Enough is enough of this left-wing bullcrap.
Christians won’t be signing up or extending. This is a nail in OUR coffin.
more pc pukeness..
You don't hear Republicans complaining about Obama’s decision to not defend DOMA, setting us up for paying SS and medicare to same-sex couples. And you will hear crickets on this, I miss 1993.
At the very least, SNL’s “writers” will have some fodder, upon which they’ll save their arses for the near future.
The late great American military. RIP
Coool,,,that’ll help em out a lot as they are fighting their way into Libya,,,
Now when we pray to God to be merciful and protect our sons and daughters it isn’t just from a vicious enemy from without. It’s from those who are in control of our armed forces.
So unconstitutional from a million standpoints. Forcing respect for such disgusting and demeaning behavior takes away the freedom of conscience and religion. I suppose they have messed with the troops minds with the homosexual Afghanis who molest their boys and parade them around....The military homosexual commander in chief is trying to destroy our military now...
You will not have troops who are honorable and have character, if they practice homosexuality. It is not possible. Forcing respect of that act is a gross violation of conscience and it goes against our Constitution...laws can not go against the nature of man. They are unjust according to the intent of our Founding Fathers. There is nothing natural about homosexuality. It is a perversion and it always includes pederasts. It advocates child abuse.
Listen to the first paragraph of this....it is what homosexuality is all
I talked to my son the other day about this. He’s a middle manager rank in the Army. He’s got three years to do and then he’s retiring. He can’t stand the way things are but he has invested so many years that he can’t just walk away without his full retirement. He says that many, many troops feel this way but with the shaky economy, they’re not sure they can make the kind of money out of the military that they make in, so they stay, but just putting in time.
The Warrior ethos is dying. Don’t see how we can survive if things don’t change.
