As my parter is in the service, my vote is obviously yes. Anybody who wishes should be able to serve their country, and put their life on the line, without lying about it or being threatened with losing their job, and theirfore their livelyhood

The Military is not a place for Social Experiments. It has a job to do and that does not include making people happy about their sexuality.There are 1,000's of jobs in the military and some places a gay might fit, but not in Combat Arms. 1 out of 10 never fire a weapon except on a range.
You take 9 straight soldier's in a rifle squad and put in one openly gay man, you have a problem and they won't last long. Life in the military is about cohesion, this will not take place with a gay person, it's about being willing to give your life for another. Sometimes this has to occur in a very short period of time. Example : you lose 3 men in a firefight, the next day you receive 3 replacements. Those replacements have to bond and be accepted instantaneously, because that same day you might be in battle again. Been there done that and I'll tell you, when your life is on the line, you do what you have to do and you'll not let someone else get you killed, you take action. Misfits do not last, be it someone from the ghetto in Detroit, a gay from Atlanta or a pot smoker from Podunk.
Good luck to them, Pink Body Bags.

It is discrimination, and is it anyone's right to deny any man of service?
