    Hagel:

    "I am fully supportive of ‘open service’ and committed to LGBT military families.”

      He has also opposed someone for being openly aggressively gay.

      There are a lot of questions:

      - Will he fully implement DADT repeal?

      - Will he consider benefits and work arounds given DOMA?

      - Will he fully study DOMA's impact on military benefits for LGB families?

      - What about transgender service?

      He needs to be questioned directly on all of these things. Vague statements are no good.
