I know what you are saying about the spelling but I moved to Florida from York Beach ME and work in the ER.Believe me when I tell you the EMT'S in Florida cannot spell either. Hopefully, they do know what they are doing but I question a few I have seen.

"Dont ask, dont tell" sends a mixed message in a profession and situation where misunderstanding can get one killed-war. A Soldier in a combat zone is not a clerk in a Walmart of an accountant or teller in a bank. They are in a 24/7 high stress living environment. A clerk, teller or accountant wouldnt tolerate a co-worker talking about sexual encounters while in the work place and a soldier defininately should not. It tells young people who are targeted for enlistment that rules can be broken, that authority is arbitrary and that lying is okay as long as you dont get caught. Nice lesson to teach a young person with an M-16! There is a reason for that little box on the enlistment form and as long as it remains there, it needs to be answered honestly and if the applicant lies, they need to be prepared to suffer the consequences for that lie-dishonorable discharge. It is also important to remember that the military policy doesnt not only extend to sexual preference but as been proven lately in published, credible accounts it is also tolerated in sexual acts as more and more evidence surfaces that soldier on soldier rapes are occuring within our troops and the women subjected to them are being told "dont tell, deal with it, you wanted to be here so shut up about it". Perhaps, that may be the best example to those pushing for open sexuality that they shouldnt enlist but find some other civilian way to service this nation: men getting raped by other men (happens in prisons all the time)-after all the military is an equal opportunity employer!
