And look at all the war heroes among them. There must be 30 or 40 Medal of Honor Recipients just back from the front with Eastasia.

A proud and happy day for the left.

Just the kind of military they can support.

When I was on active duty, any kind of open political activity was discouraged particularly if in uniform or if identifying branch of service. That tank picture is disgusting.

Won’t be long and any military Parade will be gay.

Straights will not stay in with this bunch.

I am a Veteran and no way would I ask any relative of mine to join Obama’s Army.

I'm a veteran and my eldest son is a veteran. We both talked my youngest son out of joining. My eldest left a couple of years ago, said "It's changed....a lot."

The pink tank must mean they don’t like combat. this is what the armed forces are getting into with the new gay-friendly policy.

And despite their combat gear, even if they are veterans, they’re probably all REMFs.

Hopefully the crowd will turn their backs on them when they march pass......on second thought, maybe that is not such a good idea!

Having a hard time verifying that “more than 200” number. I count 7 in the picture.

Could we have the names of all the “active-duty gay” participants?

As it stands with the current regime, I will not be a bit surprised at some point to see a military unit ordered to march in one.

Court: ‘Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell’ Will Temporarily Stay in Place

I just pinged it out:

http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/chat/2749362/posts?page=18

Nauseating. Here’s a snip from the end of the Fox article, Those who “died for equality”? What, people who died of AIDS??? This is so sickening and horrible I can hardly stand it.


On Saturday, a contingent of active-duty troops and veterans are expected to march in San Diego’s gay pride parade.

Former Navy operations specialist Sean Sala is organizing what is believed to be the first military contingent of troops and veterans to lead a gay pride parade.

Sala said the parade group wear T-shirts showing their branch of service. They will walk with two horses — one draped in an American flag and the other with the rainbow-colored Pride flag — to honor service members and those who have died for equality.

Such a sight would make enemy troops either (1)too busy vomiting to fight,or,(2)die laughing.

>>> That tank picture is disgusting.

It could be worse. If I'm not mistaken that AFV is a British model. From some private collection. Someone who goes to that expense won't let it be permanently altered. Almost certainly the pink is water color. It'll easily wash off.

Besides, there is precedent.

Here we go: We should form units that are 100% gay, and let them have their pink tanks. Something tells me in a combat scenario, they’ll be a much brighter and more obvious target than a beige/green/grey tank :)
