During The Revolutionary War, Prussian Baron von Steuben offered his help to General George Washington in training the raw U.S. troops. In addition to training the troops, he wrote the first U.S. Army Manual which established sanitary regulations, housing regulations and the other things needed to train an army. His Army Manual was used by the U.S. Army for more than 50 years.<quoted text>
Stop exaggerating. No significant argument ever claimed there would be "disaster", but only a continued advancement of depravity in our culture.
After we had won The Revolutionary War and secured our independence, Congress was so grateful to General von Steuben (for whom the annual Steuben Day Parades are held each year in various cities), that Congress granted General von Steuben a large tract of land in upstate New York, along with a lifetime pension.
General von Steuben was openly gay, and while training the troops, he lived with 4 gayboys he brought over from Europe. General Washington certainly didn't seem to mind.
When General von Steuben died, he left hs estate to two gay U.S. Army officers with whom he had shared his life.
General von Steuben - A GREAT GAY AMERICAN PATRIOT !
REMEMBER THE STEUBEN DAY PARADE !
