Gen. James Amos: Repealing DADT Might Maim Marines, But I’ll Do It Anyway

Though Marines topper Gen. James Amos last week said the end of DADT could cost the “legs” of his servicemembers because of the “distraction” openly gay troops will cause, he now insists that once the president, Gates, and Mullen certify repeal he will “personally lead this effort, thus ensuring the respect and dignity due all Marines. On this matter, we look forward to further demonstrating to the American people the discipline and loyalty that have been the hallmark of the United States Marine Corps for over 235 years.”
