All this in the name of an alleged homosexual commander-in-chief and his impotent members of the oh so politically correct members of the pencil pushing Joint Chiefs of staff who would rather pander to “Their Leader,” than do the right thing.
First, Obama got rid of Don’t Ask Don’t Tell signed into law by Bill Clinton, now still in the pandering to the LGBT community taxpayers are forced to pay for sex change surgeries among the confused individual who may fail to see this as their life style choice.
Of course it would be difficult for those in Washington to contemplate that some of these folks would join the military for a free surgery.
Soldiers pray at military base; Cruz, Lee Fight for Religious Freedom for
Military Service Members

Soon there may only be atheists in the foxholes.
Christians are leaving the U.S. military or are discouraged from joining in the first place because of a “hostile work environment” that doesn’t let them express their beliefs openly, religious freedom advocates say.
Michael Berry, senior counsel at the Liberty Institute, a Texas-based legal organization dedicated to defending religious liberty in America, said recent high-profile cases of military chaplains facing punishment for private counseling sessions that reflected the teachings of their religion could cause devout Americans who are qualified for military service to think twice about joining the military.
In December, a chaplain for a Ranger training battalion received an administrative letter of concern after a soldier complained that he advocated Christianity and used the Bible during a mandatory unit suicide-prevention training session. The Military Association of Atheists and Freethinkers said the chaplain “used his official position to force his personal religious beliefs on a captive military audience” in an article the group posted on its website.
And, last month, a Navy chaplain was removed from his post and may lose his career after some sailors complained about his private counseling, in which he reportedly advocated against homosexuality and sex outside of marriage.
“People of faith are going to stay away from the military,” said Mr. Berry in an interview with The Washington Times.
“I can’t tell you how many moms and dads I’ve spoken to who say, ‘My son or daughter wants to join the military, [but] in light of what you’ve described, I’m not sure I want to let them join the military anymore,’ and I don’t blame them. I would have serious reservations about my own kids joining,” Mr. Berry said.
