    "When I joined the military it was illegal to be homosexual,

    then it became optional

    and now it's legal.

    I'm getting out before they make it mandatory."

    GySgt Harry Berres, USMC

    males were removed from their homes at around 5ish.....given to a male mentor....why?
    to encourage bonding.....the idea being you would fight harder due to protecting men you had bonded with....homosexuality was the norm, spartans were considered the greatest warriors etc....

    matter of fact.....athens voted to go to war far more often than sparta

    It's not a big deal (gays in the military), to me. I could personally care less. It was a quote from a Gunny Sgt. that I found funny - knowing many a crusty old Gunnery Sgts. Those who have served find the humor in this. That's what it was meant to be - humor.
