  1. “Integrity is one of the seven Army values” along with raping and murdering civilians. She took the money to train as an abuser so hell mend her!

    along with being truthful.

    mind you, in a country where most of the population live their lives by made up fairytale mumbo jumbo bollocks it doesn’t surprise me.

  3. regardless of the silly situation of DADT, that was a pretty stupid thing to do before actually being getting in – where they wouldnt be able to force the payment back of 80,000

  4. The American systems gets sicker by the day

  5. I think she shouldn’t have to pay it back because she’s gay. If integrity is one of the seven army values, then she was being a 100% honest. It’s wrong to make her pay it back after she was ALREADY accepted into the program.

    Is there no end to how far, how petty these jerks of DADT will go in order to beat our brave lesbians and gay men into the lie of, “good enough to die for your country,But not as lesbian or gay.” Such a crock of dishonesty by our plastic ,(Leaders?)
    Take the monies back? Not one penney.She is ready,willing, able to protect and serve.IT is far past time to throw this, “Don’t ask, don’t tell” out with the rest of the trash, where it belongs.

    It’s simple! Here are the Army Rules:

    1. Never lie
    2. Never tell the truth (about your sexuality)

    Ipso facto – anything goes…
