SAN DIEGO (AP) Some of the loudest cheers Saturday at San Diego's gay pride parade were for active-duty troops marching in military dress, the first time that U.S. service members participated in such an event while in full uniform.
Dozens of soldiers, sailors, and Marines marched alongside an old Army truck decorated with a "Freedom to Serve" banner and a rainbow flag. They were joined by dozens more military personnel in civilian clothes, but the uniforms stood out among the flower-bedecked floats and scantily clad revelers.
Spectators waved signs reading, "Thank you for your service." A woman held a placard that said: "My gay son is a Naval officer."
In a memorandum sent to all its branches this year, the Defense Department said it was making the allowance for the San Diego event even though its policy generally bars troops from marching in uniform in parades.

No wonder urinals are being removed....
I never thought I’d live to see that uniform disgraced like that.....it makes me sick..
When I think back to the crowded barracks and living on board ship in the berthing area... I would have a extremely difficult time know that Petty Officer ****** was gay.
It would be as if I as a guy was suddenly put into a berthing area that was all female. Just total overwhelming temptation and that just my over-acting hormones going.
This ‘experiment’ is not going to end well and I expect that overall shipboard morale and readiness is going to plummet. I foresee more ‘man overboard’ incidents and if combat occurs... Well you might see more losses there too and for a myriad of reasons.

I suspect that enlistments will drop and in a few years there will be talk of bringing back the draft.
I wonder if they could march in a pro-life event?
This is just wrong.
Charlton Heston called it a “culture war” and we are losing. The communist infiltrators are getting everything they want. They can’t take God out of my heart, but they are getting everything they want with regards to destroying the US Constitution, state sovereignty, and the cohesive loving family.
“Tear it all down man! Bring it all down man!”
Someday, the United States is going to pay for destroying NASA just so Islamofascists could feel good about themselves.

It’s too late. Just try and defend your home.
Saw today that not only Google but also eBay have joined the battle on behalf of gay marriage. But just let a business owner say NO, as the Chick-fil-A chief did, and the media brand him a vicious bigot. It's surreal.
I think the fags in the military would do whatever their pro-fag-in-the-military-commander-in-chief wanted them to do, regardless of its constitutionality. that's what I think.
