Military: No problems so far preparing for 'don't ask, don't tell' end

Washington (CNN) - Preparations for repealing the "don't ask, don't tell" policy that bans openly gay people from the military have gone better than expected so far, military leaders told a House committee Thursday.

"I've been looking for issues, but honestly we haven't seen it," said Gen. James Amos, the U.S. Marine Corps commandant who was perhaps the most resistant of the military chiefs to the repeal measure passed by Congress in December.

    Why would there be a problem. It's seems like LONG AGO this issue was appealed and most Americans already knew it would not be a problem. The POLITICS was a problem because EVERYTHING has to be a BIG ISSUE!!!

    Just because the Republicans made it seem like the end of the world, doesn't mean that our intelligent and hardworking troops felt the same way. I am very proud of them for embracing an all inclusive attitude and serving the country proudly. Republicans, shame on you as always.

    Great news! Some guy by the name of Tim Pawlenty is trying to bring DADT back. And he claims he knows THE PEOPLE. Whatever!

  4. Glad I'm out

    Even if they had a problem, no one outside the military would know it. Will watch how many leave the service when the chance is available. At first it was illegal, them was ok so long as no one said anything, glad I got out before they make it mandatory
