Hi, my fraternal brothers.

My congradulations to the Canadian military. They are far more advanced in HUMAN relations than their US counterparts.

Maybe someday the US military will OFFICIALLY recognise the fact that gays have always been in the military since the Continental Army of George Washington.
And have and still do serve with distinction.

Many European militaries also allow gays to serve, right along side their "straight" counterparts.

Heal well, my fraternal brothers, heal well.

I don't know why sexuality should have anything to do with being in the military. I served in the Canadian Forces when I was 17 and I can say that there was hardly enough time to fit in eating and sleeping, let alone sex. Besides, everybody dressed the same was no turn on either.
