Same Sex Marriage and military structure
For those who have been through the phrase of "Don't ask Don't tell" to the present Army as it is. How do you think the Supreme Court Ruling will effect the infrastructure of the military as we know it?

I don't foresee much changing. Some folks may participate more in unit activities than before, but the overall impact should be rather transparent. As Soldiers (and Sailors, Airman, Marines and Guardians), strive to do our jobs the best we can and that won't change.
It wont? The only thing that I foresee changing is the non-chargeable leave currently offered same-sex couples if they live in a state that didn't allow same sex marriage to be taken off the book. I would imagine the OCONUS portion willl stay on the books.

CPT John Hermida, in this case it isnt about them already being in a same sex marriage, but wanting to get in to a same sex marriage. There are countries where same marriages are able to be performed.
