Military Recruiters Will Accept Gays, For Now
The Pentagon has advised recruiting commands that they can accept openly gay and lesbian recruit candidates, given the recent federal court decision that bars the military from expelling openly gay service members, according to a Pentagon spokeswoman.
So, military recruiters at high schools, you are no longer allowed to shoot weird glances at the drama kids. Those people are now allowed to die in Afghanistan, until next week, when they will be discharged and start receiving their pension or whatever, if gay people are allowed a pension.
"During this interim period of uncertainty, service members must not come out and recruits should use caution if choosing to sign up," said SLDN Executive Director Aubrey Sarvis in the statement. "The bottom line: if you come out now, it can be used against you in the future by the Pentagon."
