Hillary Rodham Clinton addresses the gay-rights organization Human Rights Campaign on Saturday and got in a few digs at Republicans, including Mike Huckabee.

Changing government records. Where have we heard this before? perhaps Tricky Dick Nixon?
What's next the Constitution? After all Obama said it is flawed, of course, that after he was elected and swore to defend it. Wow what these bought and paid for pols won't do for a vote or $$$$.

Leave them as is. They knew the rules before they enlisted.

The comments on this article are amazing to read. Really? These men and women had such a commitment to serve our country that they risked the chance of discharge. Other than a flawed policy decision, they served our country honorably and should be offered the dignity afforded their service. To even suggest that this mark be left after their service to our country is a disgusting attitude.

It is not uncommon, nor illegal nor unethical, to correct a military record to address an injustice.

Being in the Military was once a source of Pride. Now we are a laughing stock. Few red blooded Southern boys will be joining the ranks of this Volunteer Military! “There is a real crisis in morale and retention that has developed for the Army over the last several years!” Ya think?
