"It says, 'Raise an army.' It says absolutely nothing about race, color, creed, sexual orientation. How dare we, then, exclude a group of people who want to do the same thing you do right now, something that is honorable and noble? Get over it... Let's just move on, treat everybody with firmness, fairness, dignity, compassion and respect. Let's be Marines."

-- Sgt. Maj. Micheal Barrett, senior enlisted adviser to Marine Corps Commandant Gen. James Amos, speaking to a gathering of marines about DADT in South Korea. The top non-commissioned officer waved a copy of the Constitution while he spoke.
