Dan Choi is a hero on many levels. To come out, risk his job, career and face ridicule and scorn because of it, is a sign of real courage. I hope they have the good sense to take him back. We need men and women of courage and integrity like Dan Choi to defend our country. Thank you for your service, Dan.

"How many more like him are out there?"

The most recent info I can find says the trial is on hold because Lt. Choi is going to be allowed to show that he was selectively prosecuted.

Most likely the case will be eventually dismissed.

This is absurd nit because he is gay but because of manner in which he protested the policy. Chaining yourself to the fence of your commander in chief's home and getting arrested would strike me as conduct unbecoming whether protesting DADT or if you are a pro life activist. Yes I know he was not in active status at the time but there are specific rules governing the wear of the uniform. Clearly conduct unbecoming someone who would like to again be an officer.

American soldiers are expected to go above their CO's when they believe they are facing an unjust order. The Congress, the military and the American people have agreed DADT was unconstitutional and unjust. So much so that this policy has been repealed. Choi did his honorable, patriotic duty.
As a matter of record- any person in the US may wear a military officers uniform, whether they've earned the right-as Choi has-or not. This is enshrined in the First Amendment, which supercedes absolutely all other law, regulation, practice and "rules".
"Conduct unbecoming" is a concept used in courts martial. It can only be used in the vernacular sense when applied to civilians. It is clearly only a common expression of an opinion in Choi's case.

Unlawful order, not an unjust order. Serving in the military, to say nothing of receiving a commission, is not a right but a privilege.

Again, then why is any of this not true for a soldier protesting the The White House stand on Roe in uniform. Civil disobedience ce is simply not allowed in uniform from anyone expecting to keep their commission.

All Americans have the right, whether we disagree with it or not.

Americans have the right to do what? To kill? To enlist to kill? To believe the false propaganda that corporate America is feeding them so that they can go out and kill to profit corporate America? Have you read the article here on "World Police" a few days ago...?

Enlisting to protect and serve. Unless you'd rather that we disband the military.

Prevent wars. They're not protecting me or anybody. Corporate America creates war, sedate the masses with false propaganda and all for self-profit. Soldiers are merely tool they use to achieve their goal.
