Do you know many veterans who support allowing gays, in the military? I was in the navy for 21 years, including six months near Baghdad. I was in marine units for eight years. I think that about 75% of sailors and marines, I know, oppose allowing gays in the military.
I would say it's generational. I'm retired. Everyone that I know who's a contemporary of mine (and has voiced an opinion either way), didn't support the repeal. I think as you descend into the lower ranks, the service members are generally either more supportive or perhaps ambivalent or even indifferent about the repeal.
My personal estimation is that if the repeal has any effect at all on recruitment, it will be negligible at best. That is a wholly separate question about whether or not it will have any negative effects on good order and discipline. I think that it will.
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
