    General James F. Amos has said that, two months after lifting the ban on openly gay service personnel known as “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” (DADT), the military appears to be embracing the change and that he is “very pleased with how it’s gone.”

    Amos, who stridently argued against a repeal during wartime, told the Associated Press in a recent interview that he is unaware of a single incident where there has been a problem since the repeal, and only one false alarm has been filed since the appeal took effect. Amos, commenting during a week-long trip that included four days in Afghanistan, went on to tell an anecdote which involved his wife meeting an out member of the armed forces.

    From the AP:

    In the AP interview, he offered an anecdote to make his point. He said that at the annual ball in Washington earlier this month celebrating the birth of the Marine Corps, a female Marine approached Amos’s wife, Bonnie, and introduced herself and her lesbian partner.

    “Bonnie just looked at them and said, ‘Happy birthday ball. This is great. Nice to meet you,’” Amos said. “That is happening throughout the Marine Corps.”

    Fantastic. When they're not focused on getting their asses shot off, they have this to ponder.

    Fucking idiot.

    Like all good Sailors, the first place I would head off to on liberty while in a foreign port was the off-limits area. One particular bar in "the gut" did donkey shows and other various acts with different members of the animal kingdom. After a couple gallons of Mo-Jo and a few San Miguels, the interest in the entertainment started to "rise."

    Truthfully, I was never too crazy about watching a LBFMPBR do it with a farm animal but those acts were supplemented with banana and ping pong ball shooting and peso squats. One night in particular though, one of the girls walked out on the stage with a German Shepherd. Before it even started, I got up and walked out of the bar. There is something about doing it with a dog that just ain't right.

    Yeah, the DOD has made it legal for dudes to diddle each other, but with animals, come on now, that's a little too much.

    Ah yes - good old P.I.

    I too remember stacking the Pesos so the girls could have a seat.

    Ah youth. These young kids don't know what they missed back in the day.

    Ever catch the "Banana Act" at the Tower Club in Okinawa?
