For clarification's sake, does DADT prevent gays from serving in the military?

Ed Cone

It's meant to prevent openly gay people from doing so.

Should openly gay people not be required to subsume their will to the cohesion of the unit?

Dave Ribar

Jeff:

The policy also prevents non-celibate gays, lesbians and bisexuals from serving in the military. Service-people can be discharged for homosexual conduct or if they are partners in a same-sex marriage.

Should openly bigoted people not be required to subsume their will to the cohesion of the unit?

Just to satisfy my curiosity is there another current country that allows openly gay personnel in their combat military force or condones homosexual conduct or same-sex marriage by their combat personnel?

Ed: Thanks for the list. My friend was asking me about this last night and I really didn't have the answers. It is not something I know a lot about.

a beautiful lady in the Spanish department at UNCG informed me there were no gay men in Columbia except for Catholic clergy who were not from there. I asked her if that was on her tests.
