>> Did the soldier get booed immediately?
The audience was notably quiet except for a couple of boos once the video of the self-described homosexual soldier ended.
Just watched it again. He finished asking and one maybe two people booed. It certainly wasn’t a crowd.
The booing stopped abruptly. The way I took it was that at first it seemed the soldier was going to COMPLAIN about the repeal of DADT and the boos were, in effect, to support his complaint.
When it became clear that he was on the other side of the issue, the audience became quiet.
If a soldier had said, “I’m concerned about the repeal of DADT” and the audience booed the repeal, and then the soldier wnet on to say “This is one of the worst policies for combat readiness, will you reinstate DADT?,” the booing would have been considered fine.
That said, people should keep fairly quiet at these things because it’s hard to tell how reactions will be interpreted and what will develop in a question or answer.
