Word gets out. We have the internet now.
The media is pushing this crap. Check out Outserve, the LBGT website for US military. It should not take long, about two minutes.
have a pal out in Kabul who told me that there has been an incident he;s heard of but they have been covered up so to speak.
We need more officers who care for this country more than their own careers and right now it seems we have quite a few who are more PC and wan their promotion than speak the truth.
I have so much respect for the marine/Airforce etc Generals who are in charge of those services who spoke up and said no to getting rid of don;t ask right now.
We all know that survey this admin put out was bogus and when Manning was giving out secrets to wikipedia the media and this admin certainly got that covered up and changed the angle of the story
Say, maybe that Benedict Arnold chap wasn’t all bad after all? When he tried to turn over West Point to the British, he undoubtedly foresaw this travesty.
Your kids are lucky they have you to advise them. I agree with you 100%.
I know veterans who voted for obama and think he’s wonderful. I simply don’t understand it.
I’ve been off active duty for more than a decade now, but I recall that a military installation and chapel were considered to be part of the state in which they were located in terms of civil legal issues. Therefore, when I would perform a wedding, I had to see that the couple had gotten a marriage license from a relevant local court.
In this case, that would be Maryland and whatever county includes West Point and its chapel. I have not heard that Maryland has passed a “gay marriage” law. Perhaps they have, and I have been unaware of it. In which case, the license for this “gay marriage” would have been duly obtained.
My other thought is that this lesbian party obtained its license in another state and is having the ceremony in Maryland. I’ve not heard that there is a federal marriage license, but perhaps there is one I don’t know about.
thank you, you know I thought having kids would have got easier but boy as they become teens it;s gets harder.
There are sometimes the blood pressure goes up but it;s worth it to see them doing good in what they do and at school.
Shame most of their friends parents do nothing bt care about themselves and let the schools, MTV and others raise them
West Point is in New York, which does have gay marriage.
You’re thinking of the Naval Academy at Annapolis.
Thanks. Brain cramp or something.
