Yep, because they have to go through everything you send out. No porno, no captured weapons, etc.

Same thing when you leave going through customs: they check everything!

LOL Still don’t know how I got that .50 cal bullet out. Luck I guess.

This is from the Navy Personnel Command website. Good info for folks that may want to get something from a retirement they can frame and remember, vice the kenyan.

Pardon my query, but are they launching a magazine or is it really just a clip?

When I deployed the word was that any soldier who received porno in the mail was required to turn it in immediately to the first sergeant, heh, heh.

Oh, Top backed it up with random health & welfare inspections. The fear was not our moral degradation but someone selling Playboy to the local labor who were not hajjis but secular muslim Uzbeks who had the vodka to swap for it.

Anyway, this is disgusting. And yes, pro-gay sensitivity training is already in draft form for all the services.

I retired two months ago after thirty four years (break in service) beginning with Vietnam. But this latest is enough to make one weep.

A start-up publication in today's economic climate is risky at best. I predict this magazine will never be published. It will exist for a while as an online product only. There is just no market for it. Would this be a wise choice for a business to spend advertising dollars in? No.

IMO the publishers of this "magazine" just want to stir the pot.

I have one question. How is the military going to handle HIV?

"I have one question. How is the military going to handle HIV?"

That is a question I was hoping someone would ask during the hearings they held late last year. Of course, no one did.

In a CDC report from as late as 2008, homosexual men (that is to say men who engage in sex with other men, irrespective of how they choose to describe themselves) accounted for fully half of new HIV infections each year. When you think about it statistically, that's amazing. They don't say what the infection rate is among these men (no doubt due to PC concerns), but elementary logic demands that it must be significant.

The question I wanted answered was, will the military demand more frequent screenings for HIV for these open homosexual, than is now the norm for regular service personal? To me, given the statistics, it would seem to be the only prudent course of action, which probably means they won't do it.

Here’s a more recent CDC report that shows the infection rate amongst these men is not abating.

As a JAG officer, what would you tell someone as to why the military should discharge a homosexual? I don’t mean quotes from the UCMJ or other legal references, but what specific interest does the military have for removing homos from uniform?

I ask this seriously as I am completely against homos in the military but I have never heard a legal argument based on a military perspective.

Not the first by far. The infiltration of the brass over the past three decades was the beginning, but you’re right. They aren’t going to stop with this total debacle.

Unfortunately, the decision has been made for us, so there’s no real forum for making an argument. I would maintain that the presence of active, practicing homosexuals in the military environment, where privacy is at a premium and where failure to control one’s urges affects others who can’t necessarily just remove themselves from the situation adversely affects morale and is therefore inconsistent with good order and discipline. However, apparently the MFWICs disagree, so I shall salute smartly and move forward until such time as somebody reengages on the issue.

... "how LGBT troops are proud soldiers, sailors, airmen, Coasties, and Marines just like everyone else."

Proud soldiers and Marines don't "fall in love" in public restrooms. They're not known for eating fecal matter. They don't take "golden showers".

Sorry, faggots are NOT like everyone else.

Thanks. I’ve heard that as an argument and I maintain it myself.

for the first time in nearly a 100 years my family will not be serving as my sons have now said that they are now seeking other future employment.
Seems I will be the last one in a long tradition of serving unless we get a president and house etc which has a spine ot make it clear that the traditions of America need to come back and make this country great again

I know of only one person who is undecided about this repeal of don’t ask.
I know of not one person who is in favor of this repeal.

I only know those in combat units as I served in them so it might be different on the supply units but even then I bet there are not more than 305 who is in favor of this.

Is the GOP doing anything, are they talking social issues, is the cowardly Hannity etc talking and informing on social issues?

f course not they’re all cowards when we needed a voice the likes of Hannity who states they’re big supporters of us stayed silent,.
The GOP are cowards and the more they stay silent the more the homosexuals will pass their agenda
