"No. You'll have to complete your ... enlistment just like everybody else. The reality is that you don't all agree with each other on your politics, you don't agree with each other on your religion, you don't agree with each other on a lot of things, but you still serve together. And you work together. And you look out for each other. And that's all that matters."

-- Defense Secretary Robert Gates to a Marine sergeant who wanted to know if religious right soldiers would be able to quit the service once Don't Ask Don't Tell is fully repealed.
