You are talking about the same US military that was desegregated by Executive Order in 1948, right? Change does happen Stu, perhaps not as fast as the demographics, and apparently too fast for you, but it does happen.

^ Once again you focus on things people can't change. Maybe some medical people can correct me but I don't think it is possible to change your DNA.

Don't ask, don't tell was predicated on a choice. Haircuts are a choice. Gender is not a choice.

Etc.

A Sikh in Phoenix was the central character of a tragic news story out of Phoenix that went national directly after the 9-11 attack. I'm sure Stuatle recalls...

Nothing to do with the OP really, it just tripped a memory.

Documentary tells story of Sikh slain after 9/11 | Arizona local news - Mesa, Scottsdale, Gilbert, Tempe, Chandler | eastvalleytribune.com

I recall GW himself, discussing this incident as part of a larger issue to a national television audience a few days after 9-11.
