TOKYO Master Sgt. Marc Maschhoff revels in the turns his life has taken in the last year.
Last summer, Maschhoff had to keep his sexuality a secret or risk being kicked out of the Air Force.
On Monday, he was happily introducing his boyfriend to diplomats and politicians from around the world as the U.S. ambassador to Japan held a reception in honor of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender Pride Month.
Maschhoff traveled with his boyfriend who is also an airman from Misawa Air Base in northern Japan to Tokyo for the event. Maschhoff said he was invited by the embassy because of his affiliation with the group Outserve, a Washington, D.C.-based association for gay servicemembers with chapters worldwide.
During an embassy press briefing before the ambassadors reception, Mark Bromley, chairman of the Council for Global Equality, a nonpartisan human rights organization based in Washington, D.C., said the marriage act [DOMA] is likely bound for the Supreme Court.

Anyone who's studied the history of the left knows that full acceptance and celebration of this "lifestyle" was always the endgame. It won't be long (if it hasn't happened already) that homosexual acceptance training will be given along with those sexual harassment awareness lectures personnel were always forced to attend every year.
Progressives just love using the military for their own social engineering laboratory.
Nevertheless, Your will be done.
If I am ever ordered to attend a function such as this I will refuse.
One year left and I am done.
We are witnessing the death of our once-great nation.
“diplomats and politicians from around the world” must be SO impressed by our embassy receptions, and the chance to rub shoulders with our military homosexuals
Why TF would you want to share your bedroom proclivities with the rest of us and make demand by legal construct we identify you as “Homosexual”?
It goes the other way and you, as a person, become a cheap ass pejorative whose identity and first name becomes “My Gay friend, Steve?”
I never thought I’d live to see the day when the communists would turn the U.S. military into the poster boy for sexual deviancy.
This makes me want to puke! Time to clean house.
Ah, air force MSGT. No surprise really. Airforce full of queers with pink palms, clean fingernails and perfumed necks.
Well, when will male E8s be allowed to attend formal functions with their E4 girlfriends?
Never? Because male E8s with E4 girlfriends are treading very heavily on the fraternization policy. If they are in the same unit- not allowed.
Different unit? Probably workable, but wrong as two dogs blah blah blah.
Different rules for different sexual preferences. Sounds really fair to me.
If the pooftas dont get you the mooslims will, USA is going to hell.
If is painful to think of what will be left in the military after all the good men are forced to leave.
