Mauro Del Vecchio’s like Italy’s very own General Peter Pace! No, he didn’t call gays immoral, as former Joint Chiefs Chairman Pace so famously declared last year, the former NATO commander did voice his objection to homos in the military:
I respect any legitimate and lawful choice by a person, but I believe that in a structure like the army, where activities are always carried out together, it is advisable not to declare or reveal one’s homosexuality.
Also in my career I have encountered homosexual incidents and I acted in such a way that these situations would not happen again and those involved were relocated and employed in other areas.
Del Vecchio makes sure to mention, however, that he “never dismissed anybody from the army for being gay.” He just shipped them off to lands unknown..
