Marine Commandant General James Amos was a vocal opponent of repealing the U.S. military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy during hearings on the subject last year, but he also notably vowed that if DADT repeal was made the law of the land, his branch of the armed forces would lead the way on its repeal. And sure enough, it appears that he’s staying true to his word.
In a video released January 28th, the Commandant and the Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps jointly addressed the subject of the upcoming changes to the military’s treatment of gay and lesbian servicemen and servicewomen. Check it out:
Semper fi, marines! Great to see the top officer and top enlisted marine both standing firm on their vow to lead the way.
