The US military didn’t mind having gay women and men die for their country, they just wanted to believe a lie about who those people were. The long nightmare of our largest government institution sticking its fingers in its ears and going “nah-nah-nah-nah, we’re not listening” is now over, with surprisingly little fanfare considering how hard our opponents fought.

I cannot imagine the effect this change will have as our most conservative citizens and their families openly rub shoulders with homosexuals and find out their world does not end.

A big Huzzah for all the gays in the millinery military.

The cover of next week's Marine Corps Times. Wow.
