Most US troops think allowing gays to serve openly in the military would have a minimal effect on US war efforts, the Washington Post newspaper reports.

Some 70% of troops surveyed said the effects of repealing the ban would be positive, mixed or nonexistent, the paper said, citing a Pentagon report.

I'm wondering why the military didn't have a "don't ask, don't tell" policy in relation to blacks back in the bad old days.
