Why did she go to West Point then?

She knew she wouldn't be allowed to serve if she was "outed". They should bill her the $60 thousand a year it costs to train military "leaders", which she obviously is not.

She is in violation of her contract and could face charges for fraud, theft of services and lying on her application.

I have nothing against lesbians or homosexuals, but she knew what she was getting into when she lied to gain admittance to West Point. The law should be changed, but until it is, he violated the UCMJ.

I think you meant "she". It is the girls who are lesbians and the boys who are homosexuals.

I guess you missed all the "she"'s and "her"'s throughout the comment. They missed a single "s" in the last sentence.

Regardless of gender, if you're attracted to the same sex, you are homosexual. Homo = same

This is like a black guy joining the KKK then being upset by their anti-minority attitudes.

Oh darn, I missed an "s".(It's not like she/he cares) Please forgive me.

I will endeavor to have no errors in all future posts.

Thank you for pointing out my typo.

The turd knew she was going to quit and worked the system for 2 free years of education. She never intended to fulfill her obligation to the Army.

She has already been accepted at another college starting in September.
