I think it's a shame she knowingly took an appointment away from a worthy applicant who would've served their country with honor.

Don't mean to be a bad person but she can always get a job at Home Depot. She'll love it there.

I personally was in the corps in 69. I did not know then and I don't want to know now what you do with your mouth. Don't tell me you are gay. I don't care. Just don't touch me. That is nasty. Keep it to your self. What is the point in anyone knowing your preferences??? Just asking! So you can stick out.(Pardon the pun)

She left the Corps because she can no longer lie?
Isn't honor the very essence of being a marine? I would prefer not to have this lying d y ke defending my country.
