    And how is her sexuality status a threat to National Security? Because she lied? I lost track of how many times I lied or my fellow soldiers lied to cover up for one of our own when they were underage drinking or did something stupid.

    Breaking News: Gays have been serving in the military for longer than we've been alive.

    One can't pick and choose which policies to abide by and which to not. The whole premise of the military is following lawful orders and policies set forth by those in charge. She should not have been promoted, or even still be in the Army. However, she did get promoted and is still in. That is the direction the military is going, compromise.

    im going to bet atleast one or more of them was gay too so im thinking they would have said "you go girlfriend"

    there are alot of gays in the armed forces.there was gay sex in the trenches of ww1 there was gay sex on the sands of normandy there was gay sex in the jungles of vietnam and gay sex in the moutains of afgahastan..thre is no way to get rid of it.

    maybe instead of people worrying about gays in the millitary they should worry about the drug addicts or gang members that have beeen documented going in to learn to be better and tougher on the streets...how about the high percentage of domestic violence..nope the OP isnt worried about that.

    If so, than it's not some mysterious genetic condition instead of a behavior choice.

    If not, then she lied to obtain a security clearance.

    I think I have told you once before. If you have a beef with me, PM me. Don't be a punk and do it on the forum, but, if you do, I understand, as that's your style.

    what the **** does it matter if shes gay or not? seriously. Does being gay inhibit ones ability to fire a weapon? To defend their country? To honor their Oath? To command troops or to DIE in battle? NO......I Am a Former Marine and i support ANY soldier who has given 26 years of their life to this country no matter what sexual preference they have.

    Support our damn troops! Regardless of their skin color, religion, sexual preference or Political beliefs.............seriously. If you dont support gay marriage. COOL. But dont insult a Army General because she likes women. Thats severely un-Patriotic and out right un-American.

    Congratulations to the General on earning her star. :salute:

    The govt lies about weed. I lied about weed use. It didn't affect national security while I had my clearance.


    Hey............ Isn't that the unit patch for the 69th Div?:dunno:




    I certainly hope so.

    Really? So you believe that insulting a solder. who has given most of their life to protecting your behind.......deserves to be judged because of their choice in partner?

    What happened to "where all men are created equal". ? I dont think that saying just applies to MEN.

    After 9-11.........do you have any idea how many gay and lesbian firefighters charged into the towers , some who lost their lives.......

    Do you know how many Cops, Paramedics, Doctors.........are gay or lesbian?

    I understand religious views on Marriage. Thats your right as an American. However what gives you the right to judge a human being who lives to defend you?

    Im willing to bet all my chickens that if we had another terror attack......you wouldnt give two craps who was saving your butt..........gay....lesbian..........jewish..........mexican......wouldnt matter.

    But its sure easy to sit at a computer and Insult our troops isnt it. Easy to judge people from afar. That is cowardice. Im sure that this woman...........doesnt have that much in her. Do you?

    So, any opinion expressed on this forum which goes against yours is 'cowardice'?

    How is it that I insulted her?

    You sound awfully shrill.

    It's not that fact she is homosexual that is at issue. It is the fact that she was homosexual when in fact declaring that she was not for the last 25+ years and violating established policy.
