"Does anyone know how many resignations we have had so far as a result of DADT?"

Zero. There is almost 10% unemployment.

While I'm not a fan of the DADT repeal, it's fanciful to believe that there might be some resignations because of it. Besides, the only people who can resign from the military, or non-ob officers.

The only indication where you might be able to discern where the repeal has had a deleterious effect (at least on troop strength) is on the retention and recruitment numbers. Thus far, those number have been excellent - again, in no small part due to economic conditions.

By the time there are lots of jobs, this issue will be old and probably accepted and forgotten about.

Not sure what happened, but that should have read...

Besides, the only people who can resign from the military, are first or second year academy students or non-ob officers.

“Zero. There is almost 10% unemployment. “

Wrong! I know a Marine officer that the wife just hired. She just resigned over homosexuals in the marines.
