You know I heard some old military representative saying on NPR this morning that if we repeal "don't ask don't tell," then we may risk smart, intelligent, well-trained individuals from re-enlisting.

Good. This leaves room for the well-adjusted, non-discriminatory, intelligent, well-trained individuals to fill in the gap left by those who are intolerant of something that has been here much longer than their "belief."

I'm pretty sure we will never have a shortage of willing people to serve our country.
