Well, lookie here…. a common thread in these two posts this morning! Wooo hoooo!
AnotherGayRepublican has the lowdown on a new report highlighting the price the US military is paying for their “DADT” policy.
Gays and recruiting goals – AnotherGayRepublican
New report from Servicemembers Legal Defense Network says: The United States military could attract as many as 41,000 new recruits by lifting its ?Don?t Ask, Don?t Tell? ban on gay personnel, new data released today by Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN) shows.
AGR observes: It shouldn’t matter whether letting gays and lesbians serve openly helps recruiting goals or gains 4 or 40,000 new service members. It should be enough that these men and women love their country and want to serve. But if this argument convinces the government to change policy, we’ll take it.
But of course what you really want to know now is…. what would Oliver Stone think? (Was that segue too obvious???)
