  •  why the military exemption? (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Armed forces personnel are already obviously protected so this would seem to only extend to civilian employees, but what is the rationale? I understand the small business / religious exemptions whether I agree with them or not, but the military exemption seems pretty hard to justify. Am I missing something obvious?
