Correction, it's not that they CAN'T, but they wont. I had a Soldier who got married within in his last weeks in country. He got an exception to policy for his wife to live with him, but that is not the norm.

If joining the US military means that you are 'signing off' on some of your rights, how come an officer of said military is publicly criticizing its policies? Being an openly gay grunt is a problem but being an anti-establishment officer is a just fine?

I bet any amount of money that this exact argument happened back when (if you'll excuse the terminology) 'coloureds' were allowed to serve in the same companies as whites.

You weren't perfect, but relative to your "peers", you're light years above them. The fact that you were able to comprehend that much, proves the fact that it wasn't that hard to understand. This wasn't the first time that you have done so. This is how I can call the BS flag when people claim that they don't understand.
