"When you wear the cloth of your country, you don't care what your battle buddy's race, creed, color, or orientation is, you worry if they can fire their M4 machine rifle, or whether they can kick down a door in Baghdad or Kabul."

--Rep. Patrick Murphy (D-PA), the lead sponsor on the Military Readiness Enhancement Act, which would repeal Don't Ask, Don't Tell," in an interview with the Advocate
