    it's guaranteed that at least some will say 'being gay in the military was illegal then, so they deserve Dishonorable Discharges.'  Just wait for it - guaranteed to happen.  :(

    I am not religious, and did NOT say I enjoyed sects.

      actually all the way right but that doesnt mean we dont try to reduce the damage.

      In another post I got in a discussion about that very thing.  Someone claiming bad faith acts by commanders posted two cases that he felt demonstrated the military only cared about gay sex not sexual assault.  Both were from the mid 80's - before even DADT.  The commanders were enforcing the law at the time.  

      Colorado just made pot legal for recreational use.  Doesnt change any convictions for use from last year.  And it doesnt make the public servants who enforced those laws evil.
