Opponent to gay ban repeal changes opinion
Tuesday - 11/29/2011, 7:23am EST
Marine Gen. James Amos now calls the repeal a non-event and says it does not undermine the war effort. In fact, he says, Marines have embraced the change.
Amos had cautionary words for Congress in December 2010, shortly before President Barack Obama signed the repeal legislation. The ban was not lifted until this year to allow the Pentagon to prepare troops for the change.
He now sees no sign of disruption in the ranks — even on the front lines and says he's pleased with how the transition was rolled out.
