Great quote regarding gays in the military.

    Heard a very different take on gays in the military this morning.  A Colonel about to receive his first star but instead decided to retire stated, "When I joined the military gays were banned.  Some years later they were allowed to join under a don't ask don't tell policy.  Now Congress is pushing to allow them to join and remain openly gay.  I've decided to retire before being gay becomes mandatory."

      lol, so he's saying gays have no choice after all (at least not in the future military) wink  Maybe that idea will catch on...

        More than likely.  I guess he felt free to say what he truly thought as he was retiring anyway.

          lol, I was speaking tongue in cheek. But yes, he certainly allowed himself a moment of public honesty there... for better or for worse.
