Dear John,

You are acting like a horse’s ass again.  Our founding fathers new (and you never learned) that you don’t put civil rights up to a vote.  I’m not saying that serving in the military is a ‘civil right’ (it is a privilege), but it is a similar situation with regard to asking advice from rank & file service personnel about inclusion.  If President Truman had asked the rank & file military members if the military should be integrated, what do you think they would have said.  Grow up John, you made a bad decision that is not supported by our military leaders and your ego is too big for you to admit that you are wrong.
