Really? Let's see. I am Gay. A Democrat. And from California. After graduating college, I joined the Air Force as an enlisted person for patriotic purposes only. I felt a calling to serve my nation and give something back in whatever small way I could. Many great men (and more than a few women too) gave everything they had (i.e. their blood, sweat, tears, and lives) throughout our history so that I could be a free man and live a life many of them never got to reach. The inconvenience to me was a small price to pay for a debt of gratitude.

I looked at all branches and chose the Air Force because I liked the whole "aviation thing" the best. I attended Lackland Air Force Base and not once thought about sex with another male. Ever. Focus is focus and I found nothing sexual abotu Basic Training.

I graduated, went to Tech School at Keesler AFB where my focus was the same. Then on to Davis-Monthan Air Force Bae in a unit of mostly men. Two deployments overseas to thr sandbox. No thinkign about sex with my fellow troops. Focus is focus. Eight years, two tours, three medals, a nomination for Airmen Of The Year, and a rabk of Tech Sgt. later, I am Honorably Discharged and proud to have served my country.

And oh yes, I srved under "Don't Ask-Don't Tell" - a sound Clinton policy for the times. But most of my heterosexual fellow troops knew I was gay. It is hard to hide. I never once had personal trouble and never once did it interfere with my duties or those of our unit.

I suggest you get an education and grow up.
