JROTC B-O-O-T-E-D over DADT

by Jeremy Hooper

JrotcBecause of the military's ban on openly gay soldiers, the San Francisco Board of Education has voted to do away with the JROTC (Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps) programs in high schools within their district. Though in a perfect world, it'd be the young JROTC members, the Board of Education, the entire population of San Francisco, and every single person in this nation demanding the elimination of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," so that no decision-making body will ever have any reason to protest our armed force's social policies ever again.

The San Francisco JROTC programs will be phased out over the next two years. "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," on the other hand, will be phased out once the right people finally wise up and see it for the discriminatory, offensive, backwards pile of nonsense that it truly is.
