It is time to end this silly don’t ask-don’t tell policy for our troops. There are no problems with homosexual people in the military of other Western countries. This nonsense of making gay people hide who they are and then booting them out if they are accused or found out is just plain wrong.
If they are willing to live and die for all of us, we should give them the same respect and the same rights as all people in the armed services. These are good, loyal Americans. They are no different from anyone else except their senses tell them they are in love with people of the same gender as they are.
We are losing too many good enlisted people and officers due to this silly policy. It’s time we stop this and just accept that not everyone is exactly the same.
We are a mosaic of ideas, cultures and colors. Every piece is just as beautiful as another in this picture of Americans. Let’s not tear this painting apart but enjoy the differences and respect each other, even if we don’t always agree with those differences.
