Obama vows to end restrictions on gays in military

Obama vows to end restrictions on gays in military | By Caren Bohan and Nancy Waitz Caren Bohan And Nancy Waitz – Sat Oct 10, 10:53 pm ET - WASHINGTON (Reuters) – "President Barack Obama, speaking on the eve of a major gay-rights march, told gay supporters on Saturday he would fight for their causes and renewed a pledge to end restrictions on their service in the U.S. military."

While I am all for equality, this isn't going to happen unless the Military buys into it. Having spent 40 years growing up, working and living with the Military, things aren't going to change overnight. The gay community may have felt that the "Don't ask, don't tell" policy was a baby step, but I can tell you now it was a massively huge step for the armed forces. It will take allot of work to get things smoothed out. I anticipate decades.
