Once DOMA is overturned in Jun this will be a non-issue, but I thank the VA Secretary Shinseki for making the right decision in the meantime.

It's a disgrace to bury queers in a national cemetery along with decent, honorable people.

You won't know it, you will be dead and never see an afterlife because it 'could' be loaded with 'queers'...you will never know!

So a brave gay or lesbian soldier died to protect your huge Cheetos dimpled ass, and you won't let him or her be buried in a honorable grave.

You aren't fit to wipe his boots.
