The U.S. military is embracing a celebration of homosexuals in the ranks this month by sending out a gay pride poster and a directive to commands, while planning a Pentagon symposium that will be attended by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel.
In the aftermath of ending the ban on open gays in the military, the Pentagon last June recognized Gay Pride Month for the first time in a subdued recognition of uniformed and civilian gays. As defense secretary at the time, Leon E. Panetta gave a public statement, and a Pentagon event featured an active-duty gay Marine, a gay Air Force civilian lawyer and a lesbian who had served in the Army.
Pride month is low-key again this year. The Pentagon has handed off planning for the event to DOD Pride, an organization of gay military and civilian employees. Directives that have been issued do not say commands must hold similar celebrations.
Secretary Hagel looks forward to participating in this years DOD Pride event at the Pentagon on Tuesday, June 25 to celebrate LGBT Pride Month, Pentagon spokesman George Little said.

From the DoD Office of Diversity Management and Equal Opportunity. Sweet dreams, Amerika.
They are literally destroying the country. Were the hell’s our military’s Pinochet? Somebody do something, damn it!
Stayed in the Shaw AFB this past weekend. They’ve taken FOX news from the TV channel lineup. The liberal channels are all still there.
How bout a straight white Christian male month?
Is there a Straight Pride Month?
Of course. It’s celebrated along with Anglo-American History Month and Male Heritage Month, during tree new month of al-Obamter.
al-Obamter, a highly classified month right now, is the period between August and September. Internal White House memos have the public release of this thirteenth month of the year scheduled for Eid al Fitr, in the year of the prophet 1436.
I can only imagine what the “salute” actually is...
Is it where you are forced to bend over, grab your ankles, and say:
“Thank you sir, may I have another???”
I can’t fathom returning such a salute...
There were 26 general grade offices who retired because they would not serve under Clinton.
Guys like Patton, MacArthur, and Chesty Puller are rolling in the graves.
Faggots and gang bangers. They’re getting rid of Christians and conservatives who don’t want to join up, makes it easier to get troops with no morals to kill american citizens.
Think about it fellas. I wouldn’t want my son to join now just because of ROE and the PC culture in command at this time.
When I retired (mandatory age, maxed out) in January 2011, I was dragged kicking & screaming from the Army I loved. I growled as I filled out reams of retirement forms. “Don’t wanna be no f******g civilian!!!” was my refrain.
I’ve kept in touch with former colleagues. Mention repeal of DADT and they do the `German glance’ (make sure no one is listening) before they speak. No more pride in being part of the “Big Picture”, now it’s “I just do my job”.
Never ever thought I would be glad to be retired. Now I am. What a crying shame it is.
And of course there is God
(whom I would never presume to know His mind) but I am thinking that this can't be good, or end well for America.
Mercifully I am in control of absolutely nothing, so I will continue to pray for His perfect will to be what guides me.
As it should be, FRiend.
I don’t know what keeps His hand from moving against us, other than His unbelieveably huge stores of mercy and His long-suffering patience.
While you’re praying for His will to guide you, don’t forget to thank Him for his mercy on all of us. Then again, I’ll bet you already do.
It’s a result of people not voting bet they feel good now.
Doesn’t surprise me. You can always fill out an ICE report, though. Don’t know how much good it would do.

Nothing new. George Washington did it with fifes and drums back in the 1778.
George Washington, March 14, 1778, General Orders.
At a General Court Martial whereof Colo. Tupper was President (10th March 1778) Lieutt. Enslin28 of Colo. Malcom’s Regiment tried for attempting to commit sodomy, with John Monhort a soldier;
Secondly, For Perjury in swearing to false Accounts, found guilty of the charges exhibited against him, being breaches of 5th. Article 18th. Section of the Articles of War and do sentence him to be dismiss’d the service with Infamy.
His Excellency the Commander in Chief(George Washington) approves the sentence and with Abhorrence and Detestation of such Infamous Crimes orders Lieutt. Enslin to be drummed out of Camp tomorrow morning by all the Drummers and Fifers in the Army never to return; The Drummers and Fifers to attend on the Grand Parade at Guard mounting for that Purpose.
I look forward to the day when the military recognizes other brave service members who are part of the broad sexual continuum. I sincerely hope that sadomasochism, scat play, the “baby people”, furries, and swingers will be honored and their sexual lifestyles be formally recognized and promoted by the armed forces. Until then, there will be just no equality in this country.
Oh man, Wayne; I think I'm gonna' hurl!
