    I wish someone with access to the national news would point out, it's not gays in the military who are causing the current scandals amongst the top brass and in the Air Force training.

    I am so embarassed for my branch. The events at Lackland AFB and other incidents within the AF have been appalling to say the least.

    Yep, we've got to put a ban on openly straight men and women in the military!

    I hope more rumors come out and more people are fired. It is time the military faces some changes.

    So glad someone had the courage to point out that it is not the gay men and women in the military that are causing this scandal. I think this is only the tip of the iceberg. There is more to come. Thanks again for this good topic. Keep up the great work!

    . Only slightly more appalling than the Navy's tailhook.

    Some of us serve our entire careers in silence, we keep our level of professionalism beyond reproach, we make sacrifices daily. Suffering alone by not being able to tell our loved ones how we feel over the phone without invasive questions, by leaving our partners at home while attending military functions, by facing hardships that ordinary soldiers do not. Our committments are not recognized, we are not authorized the same allowances married straight couple are, and most times our loved ones cannot even see us if we are under medical care. We do all of this without complaint, because we want to serve our country.There are thousands of my fellow servicemen and women in harms way, our nation is facing what could be a fiscal setback large enough it will push us back into recession, and our National Headlines are dominated by "Who's sleeping with who?" 4 Star edition. I count my blessings that Miami socialites havent wanted to open any closets that should remained closed.

    This is the part of the federal budget that needs to experience deep funding cuts. We waste too much of our hard earned tax money on defense spending. But right wing neocons would scream bloody murder because any major cuts in defense spending would scuttle their plan for continued American imperialism throughout the world.
