    Just wondering because that's when a higher percentage of gay service people are standing duty while all the Hetero family members get the day(s) off.

    I'm sure the 3% or so that are gay aren't tasked any differently than the normal soldiers. DADT is still in effect.

    I'm waiting to see how that special minority gets handled. I'm sure the first time one feels discriminated against they'll be suing their commanders.

    I know that the legal aids at the Chicago Civic Center are off for the next two weeks so poor people that get in trouble are really screwed.

    I also know the fully staffed pharmacy at Cook County's Stroger Hospital will not give out prescriptions on Lincoln's birthday. NO KIDDING!

    Nope and I thank those standing extra watches for their compassion and service.

    It's a shameful question by the OP and a self-agrandizing one...ain't it Bodey?

    You know damned well the answer to this already. So why waste time asking it? Posters that have answered it got it correct.

    Or is this just another mark of a troll?

    Family members less likely to get duty on major holidays...that falls to "single" folks...including those of us who have to portray ourselves as "single" because of possible repercussions.

    There have been Christmas duties where I've looked around and everyone holding down the fort were people I knew were gay.
