Spokeswoman Cynthia Smith said Tuesday that top-level guidance has been issued to recruiting commands informing them that the military's "don't ask, don't tell" rule has been suspended for now. Recruiters also have been told to inform potential recruits that the moratorium could be reversed at any point.
Last week, a federal judge ordered the military to stop enforcing the 1993 law banning openly gay service members. The Justice Department is appealing the decision and has asked for a temporary stay.
I attach some of the comments from readers. I would not want to have to LIVE with people like these!

Its going to be a shame when they go into battle and the queers are abandon in hostile territory. It will be then when these idiots running our goverment will learn that being politically correct is not a great idea. Homosexuality is wrong and unmoral. Thats why they have been found in the shadows of history.Reply

For all the complaining name calling. I don't see you at the recruiter office joining up. How self righteous and patriot we become when we don't have to serve. Gays have always been part of the military from day one. Not everyone is a flaming queen, most of them got more guts than you.Reply

What a repulsive situation. No child of mine will ever serve in the U.S. military. The next time the Jews try to drag us into one of their wars, find some other suckers to fight it. I realize our military is made up of wimpy officers who try to appease Zionists, feminists, gays, and assorted kooks, but this is the last straw.Reply
