Right-To-Serve's Justin Hager, a Credible Republican and Real American Patriot

Operation Yellow Elephant salutes Mr. Justin Hager (above, right), who demonstrated his courage, credibility and patriotism August 30 by visiting the Armed Forces Recruiting Center at 1781 Thierer Road on the East Side of Madison, Wisconsin, to volunteer for military service.

Money quote from the New York Times:

“Don’t judge me because of my sexuality,” said one of the three, Justin Hager, 20, a self-described Republican from a military family who has “a driving desire to join” the armed forces. “Judge me because of my character and drive.”

We also salute his colleagues John Alaniz (left) and Derek House (center), who did the same. However, thanks to our governing party's continued support of the Clinton Administration's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, despite their excellent qualifications, military recruiters turned them down.

Do we really want to WIN the Global War on Terrorism?

Think about it.

If they really wanted to join they'd put their intent to serve ahead of their sexuality. Many people are serving in the military with one kidney, a fact they covered up when they joined because they couldn't have passed the physical if it were known.

Perhaps, but in the real world of military service, it doesn't work. People are naturally curious about other people they know. This avoidance-type behavior destroys the bonds of trust and unit cohesion far more than sharing a shower.

What's more important: Catering to anti-gay prejudice among pussies too yellow to Be A Man! Enlist!, or Winning the GWOT?
