From my best friend, the best editor one could have, and a fellow retired Marine. He asks a great question. Folks living under a rock, or even those who never served might be asking what’s the big deal, there can’t be that many transgenders in the military. While that may very well be true at this point in time, but how many do you think we will have when this edict goes into effect? If I were one (OMG), and knew Uncle Sam would pay for my sex change operation, would I not join up as soon as the law goes into effect? I mean, heck, this very expensive, long drawn out surgical operation would be absolutely free!. This is an absolute travesty. Just another piece of coal thrown into the cauldron to destroy our military effectiveness, which has become nothing more than one grand social experiment for this administration. Readiness and effectiveness has not had anything to do with the changes brought about to out fighting forces. Read Dennis’ article by clicking or copy and pasting the below URL.
