Defense chiefs: repeal gay ban
In the Asbury Park Press artice "Defense chiefs: Repeal gay ban", the author states that gay troops should be allowed to openly serve in the military. There is a "dont ask, don't tell" policy which they seam to stand by, and it should come to an end. The Pentagon is working on ways to make this issue go away, while Obama says he will help the best he can.
Gates thinks if the gays keep there sexuality private then there shouldnt be a problem, but Republicans are going against the idea for the repeal. Imagine a world where your kids couldn't go to school because of there dating preference, its not fair to anyone. Its not that persons fault how they are made, and it shouldnt be held against them, especially when they are willing to fight for our country.
