    of North Carolina is an issue. Ft. Bragg is a huge base in and of itself and largely populated by people from elsewhere - Career Army and trainees. The Army has it's own quirks of course, and this whole Kerflffle is much like Officer's Wives clubs anywhere, depending on who is running them. Very Socially Concerned, and often follows the lead of the senior officer's wife. I have no doubt wives of the "lowly" O-1 and 02s (I was O3, and we company grade officers and our NCOs got most of the work done) had few problems with this Same-sex marriage stuff, but when the Colonel's or General's wife takes a position, it's a problem. Then, it's another problem when it blows up and the senior officer in charge, Col. or General, doesn't need the Officer's wives club bad press screwing up his career.....

    Bragg is an interesting place, and big. I was there last year as my son graduated from SF as Green Beret Medic. He spent almost three years there and doesn't like "Big Army" in general. Most SF guys don't for reasons like this....too much politics...

    Without geometry, life is pointless. And blues harmonica players suck.
