This is a great bill and it would mean so much to those Men and Women who served to be able to forward......but I don't see this getting through the House and that's truly unfortunate!!!

No one should be treated poorly just because they are attracted to the Same-Sex!!!

I don't know - seems logical to me.

If folks were dishonorably discharged due to an unconstitutional law that was removed for it's senselessness and unfairness, then it simply makes sense to remove such a blight from the records of those that law harmed.

It wasn't like they did something that any other soldier was allowed to do - even encouraged to do - have relationships, loved ones and families.

Why is it BS? To have a Dishonorable discharge on one's record for no reason but because of who they are is and was an injustice that needs to be righted!!!
