Washington (CNN)-- The Department of Defense announced Thursday that it will be commemorating lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender pride later this month. The event will be the first of its kind for the Pentagon.
"The Defense Department is planning an LGBT Pride Month event for later this month," Pentagon spokeswoman Eileen Laniez said in a statement issued Thursday.
Press Secretary George Little said senior Defense Department officials will take part in the event, but had no other details.
Just a year ago, a member of the military faced punishment or discharge if he or she admitted being homosexual, but last September the administration scrapped the policy known as "don't ask, don't tell."
What can I say...........I served in this once proud structure of values, honor, and focus on national security. Now the leadership is focused on immoral behavior, social deviance, radical gender experimentation in critical operations, all in the name of "political correctness" and "progressive" policies.
Another rung in the ladder to destruction is being climbed...prepare for the fall.
Well Sir, may I add an Amen...! It hurts in each one of US..
Tears come to my eyes at what has become of our Military! I know there are still a huge number of good people in there, My only hope is we give the fraud of a commander in chief the boot. Fumigate the White House, then lets get all the Military Leadership that caved to Obama out of the Military. Cowards don't belong in the Military. Then maybe we can reform it and this country back into something we can all again be proud of. May history look back on us as the new revolutionaries who put America back to being One Nation Under God With Liberty And Justice For All. Let's look to our Founder's and the Constitution and figure out what the Founders would do if they were living in our places today, then do it. Obama and his ilk have brought shame on America, let us, under the Leadership of Almighty God return it to its former Glory. Dear God we ask You all this in the Name of Your Divine Son, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior. Amen
Just confirmation,...we are living in an up-side-down world...Proof positive we have allowed PC and Progressives way too much "tolerance"...
This just sucks--and there is no pun intended
James; one fine word..! My grandma used it on the street shopping, Ron 6, look at the way that person is dressed.. no parent control at all.. `I won't repeat what she said about that persons future..!! TY
WE are losing the WAR for our country, at an increasingly rapid pace. WE were not ready for what Obama brought with him, but we most definitely see it now! Unfortuantely, WE are stuck in the seemingly never-ending "circular discussion" phase of things. WE learn of another usurpation, we talk about it - publicly showing our disgust - then we do the same thing all over again. What are WE DOING about it though? If WE think this "new" military will not fire on their own countrymen, WE will be sorely mistaken. God, gender, morals, and virtue have been removed from the current military indoctrination. It is now focused on global, individual, and protected-class rights, than on Nationalism, Americanism, and Family.
WE ARE IN TROUBLE and TIME IS SHORT.
8 years of the Clintons in charge of the military and 4 years of the communist commander in chief and what do you expect. If we ever go to war against a real enemy we are going to get our butts kicked. Do any of you think that man for man and with equal technology the army and marines of today could beat the army and marines of World War 2 ? Wake up and smell thee coffee people, the country we loved and fought for is no more. Buy ammo, find a safe rural area and wait for the day they come to get us.
No balls at al, no balls at al, that is what happens when ther are no balls at all.
Keep your eye on the sky and your powder dry!
Another example of what a moral swamp this once great country has become. While the vast majority of Americans are opposed to this sort of perversion the ever spineless self serving politicians in their never ending search for votes have sold out to a very small but vocal minority. As a veteran and a Christian my vocabulary does not have the words to express the disgust and the loathing I have for those who would allow this sort of thing to occur. I very much fear that even if we are successful in ousting the usurper in November our country will never recover.
