My father passed away last year before this abomination came into force.

As a hardcore patriot and Navy veteran he would have been appalled.

He was tolerant when it came to homosexuals - but he knew open homosexuality in the military and women on ships were a recipe for disaster.

By the way, upon a veteran’s death the family receives a certificate signed by the President.

His death was tough for the family but we all had a good laugh - knowing the old man was somewhere cussing because the Kenyan signed it.

I declined my signed certificate when I retired. (The command you retire from has to request it.)

Wish I could have gotten one signed by Ronald Reagan. Obviously too late.

There are websites where you can get one signed by any living President, as long as you served honorably and during their terms.
