The way I see it, making the sacrifice to serve your country is one of the noblest things you can do. If you’re physically and mentally fit to serve, can we really afford to turn you away? Isn’t stopping the bad guys more important than protecting the feelings of people who hate gays?
I understand that there will be drawbacks, unintended consequences. It’s going to be tough at first for gays in the military who come out, but it’ll be their choice to make. I understand the concept of unit cohesion, but I also know we have the greatest military in the history of the world. I trust that they can make it work. They stopped the Nazis; are they really going to fall apart over the Nancies?
