    No longer do US trans service personnel need to concerned that they may be discharged simply for being an openly identified trans person. Announcing the policy change is the easy aspect of the change....implementation....well that's another matter. The US military have managed to negotiate the repeal of DADT without the utter disintegration of the US military...I am confident that the US military will survive this change also.







    Naturally....not all will welcome this policy change....as far as they are concerned it's TEOTWATKI

    Great...just what you want beside you fighting - someone that cannot be decisive, nor accept the realities of life.
    More of Obama doing his best muslim/homosexual (I bet the mullahs would love to get a hold of him for that one) teardown of the US armed forces.

    I'd be like "you stand over there please. We keep receiving friendly fire for some reason." :D

    If you are confused and emotionally tormented about you gender I really don't want you covering my back when shit happens. Honestly, I don't judge or have any bad feelings towards transgender folks, but I don't need any fvck1n6 drama when things get real. Go home, get treatment, and live your life with people you care about.

    IMO, @Yard Dart has it right. This is yet one more step by the Obama administration to destroy our military from within. Remember when all the top generals got axed and then replaced by those both compliant and politically favorable to Obama? How about ignoring the needs of the military (like leaving our navy with 75% of the ships requested to accomplish their missions) while racking up more debt than all previous administrations combined? How about dumbing down training and lowering physical standards? Why mothball the A-10's when the Army is requesting them? Why so many attempts to destroy leadership, capability, and morale?

    The US military is the last line of defense where the US Constitution is concerned, and that's why Progressive elites like Obama are hell bent on tearing it down.

    I suspect we will see lots of TS soldiers die from friendly fire, perhaps even in their sleep.

    Actually, the American people are the absolute last line of defense. The military is under control of the politicians - the ones that used to represent us. Nowadays, they have been turned into pawns of the "elected" elite. Any loyalty to the country, the Constitution, or We the People is strictly an individual statement...one best not aired to superior officers.

    Odd, isn't it. Normal folks have to hide their beliefs, while the freaks run the show.

    Can anyone see this now, orders take the flank and rush the hill and watch a transgender person stand there and try and decide if the order is valid and how it will affect them personally. WHolly mother of God WTF is wrong with people hard enough to find personnel now days that have the heart to fight now we will have some wonder not if they have heart, but what type genitals they should have on the battle field? And how this will make them feel ? [seeno][poo]

    The requirement to have your "affairs in order" to deploy will just apply to everyone else.

    On the humorous side, imagine the look on the face of some enemy fighter when he goes to rape what he thinks is a female American soldier, only to find that she's hung like a horse.

    Can you imagine what inhumane treatment that soldier would have to endure at the hands of your basic Islamic thug, and what risks the other soldiers that served with that person would likely go through to prevent that?

    No more or less than usual, I imagine. Being captured is never a picnic and I can't imagine that Haj is any more creative when it comes to torture and abuse than anyone else. Also, if that person is a member of your team, you've probably already accepted them as such...warts and all...otherwise he/she wouldn't be on the team...one way or another.

    If a trans is captured by the barbarians barry will pull out all the stops and do another Bergdahl trade for the barbarian prisoners at Guantanamo to get it back.

    Heh. At the current rate, there will be no assets left at Gitmo to trade. Won't that be fun? Maybe we should go collect a few more in some desert.

    DKR Interesting ideas, interesting stories

    Over time, things change. I get that.

    Just the same, I know several of my forefathers are spinning in the grave. I'm out and my son is out.

    I haven't recommenced US military service to anyone for more than 20 years. These attacks by liberal pols are nothing terribly new, just offensive as hell.... Glad I'm done with it.

    So the way I see it they are going to be doing these elective sex change surgeries and the people who want it will have priority, you know they will receive special treatment. Mean while people who are legitimately messed up from years of military service and multiple deployments wont get the knee, back, shoulder, dental sugery they need/earned.

    If nothing else, recruiters will have an easier life. Getting them to sign up for the free surgery --

    Just as long as they don't put me in a room with a "female" who happens to have a dick... Seriously, what will they do for deployed "housing" arrangements? Is an airman or private going to get their own room over a msgt just because they are "trans"? Are they going to room people who haven't gone through the full change with the gender of their choice? How about my choice not to be stuck in a room with a stranger with a sausage for 4-6 months?
