In America, we pride ourselves on the supposed freedom and opportunities that our people are offered. In order to have that freedom, we need armed forces. By refusing to allow the LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) community to serve in our armed forces, you are eliminating a large population of people who are willing to fight for our freedom. Just because someone has a sexual orientation that is stigmatized and unaccepted by a large number of people should not mean that the armed forces should refuse their offered services.
