    Gay Guardsman Still Drills With Unit

    A New York National Guard Soldier who last year announced his homosexuality on national television is again drilling with his unit, The New York Times reported Friday.
    Lt. Dan Choi, who has been away from his unit since coming out publicly last March, said he participated in exercises last weekend at the urging of his commander, Lt. Col. John Andonie.
    The unit, the 1st Battalion, 69th Infantry Regiment, is preparing for a possible deployment to Afghanistan in 2012.
    “I’m more out, I think, than anybody,” Choi said in an interview with the Times.
    After telling MSNBC television host Rachel Maddow that he was gay, Choi was recommended for discharge at a hearing last June. The Pentagon must make a final decision on his status.
    President Barack Obama in his State of the Union address earlier this month called for a repeal of the military’s ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’ law prohibiting gays from serving openly. Defense Secretary Robert Gates and Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Mike Mullen then declared support for the effort and Gates called for a yearlong study into how best to repeal the law.

    Not sure if you did it on purpose, but the title of this thread is hilarious

    well done, sir!

    I wonder if the guy is good at his job. That should be the only criteria used to evaluate a person in the armed forces.

    I'm not sure if I have ever actually spoke my piece concerning this matter but I agree. Sexual orinetation means squat to me. I'll do my job and everyone else can do theirs. Jmo.

    I know not everyone is going to agree with me on this, but I believe the issue of gay rights is a matter of civil rights. I honestly believe in 2050, we will all look back with some shade of embarassment at the way the late 20th-early 21st century Americans treated these issues...kind of like how we now look back with shame on the issues of women's rights and the entire civil rights movement of the mid 20th century.
