Close To Home, But Far Away...

I am definitely not an advocate of war, but I am an advocate of personal choice.
"The 'don't ask, don't tell' policy, when it first came out, was a good stepping stone, but it's outlived its usefulness," Stout said. "We've progressed past it both as a military and as a society."

And this lady is just a complete idiot. I wouldn't mind serving against her and seeing who has more of a right and ability to serve:
Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness, a conservative advocacy group that opposes gays serving in the military, said a better way to avoid the cost of replacing soldiers who are discharged for being gay is to make it very clear to people who enlist in the military, including Stout, that they are ineligible to serve if they are gay.
"I honor and respect his service to this country, but the fact that he's wounded really doesn't change the underlying fact. ... He is not eligible to serve," Donnelly said, adding that there are many reasons why people aren't eligible to serve. "This is just one of them."
