    A brigade of 28 retired generals and admirals, following the lead of a former chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff, has joined the campaign to repeal the insult that forces gay military personnel to stay in the closet.

    Congress should take its cue to quickly dispatch the...

    Is the US ready to join Britain, Israel, most NATO nations, and other countries in allowing gay men and lesbians to openly serve in the armed forces?

    Anyone watching the Republican presidential debate last week might have been left thinking that those in the military are too intolerant of gays to serve with them; that all senior officers believe "don't ask, don't tell" is working and should remain in effect; and that anyone challenging the ban on gays serving openly must be...

    As Army officers with combat experience, we appreciate the recent Op-Ed column by Maj. Daniel L. Davis regarding recent polling of service personnel about homosexual troops and the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy ("Homosexuals in the military," Wednesday).

    He brings a welcome voice in the debate over the issue, and...

    There has been a great deal of interest in the media in recent days about a renewed movement to strike down the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy regarding homosexuals serving in the military. The debate, however, has not been a dialogue so much as a monologue.
