Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel Says The Military Needs? Transsexuals

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said Sunday he believes the military’s ban on transgender Americans serving in the armed forces “should be reviewed.”

While the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy was repealed in 2010, transgender individuals are still prohibited from serving.

In an interview with ABC’s “This Week,” Hagel said he’s “open” to reconsidering the ban.

“I do think it continually should be reviewed,” he told ABC’s Martha Raddatz. “I’m open to those assessments, because, again, I go back to the bottom line, every qualified American who wants to serve our country should have an opportunity if they fit the qualifications and can do it.”

Hagel said his biggest area concern with reforming the policy is being able to provide medical support to transgender troops, especially for those in what he called “austere locations.”

It won’t be long before they’ll be asking, “Do we want heterosexuals in OUR ARMY?”

Believe me, political correctness is getting bad in the Air Force. I can't speak for the other branches as I'm Air Force and live next to a major USAF instillation and speak with active duty Senior NCO's all the time. In another 10 years, all you're going to have left serving is boot lickers who would do basically anything for the opportunity to advance themselves.
