I am sure that many here will not like to read this story, but I am just as sure that many here will not like reading about how the woman is being treated by the officers' spouses on the post either. I really wonder what will happen when the final selection is made. As it goes each military base selects a wife for the honor of military wife of the year from its officers' corps. Then some of the women from organizations on each base, of all the 5 military services will vote along with the wives of the top commanders in each of the services. It may well get hairy before it is over. I believe that Obama will speak out to the 5 from the Pentagon's leaders. Yes, this one will get pretty ugly before it is over.

I believe that this is just another in a long line of Pelosi that is being used to destroy our military and the Constitution along with it.

Hang on - a woman in a same-sex marriage is "Wife of the Year" at Fort Bragg and this is somehow a threat to, in this order:
  1. The US Military, and
  2. The US Constitution

I'll bite - how?

The article talks about the refusal of our leaders to enforce DOMA and mentions the fact that with Don't Ask. Don't Tell thrown out we are well down the road to destruction of those things.


Go ahead and read the link and maybe you can find a better method of ridiculing my thread.

Read the link and see just how honored she must feel about how the other officers' wives think about her and the "honor"??.

What link are you talking about and nothing has changed in the Military since getting rid of Don't Ask Don't Tell. You are really grasping for straws.
