There are gays in the military, and when they come home injured or dead, I don't ask if they are gay or straight....All the leaders said -- and I spoke with every one of them, and I spoke over a thousand people. They said our concern is about the implementation during wartime, and I agree with that, and so do they. And they are very cognizant of trying to do it during that period. So that issue obviously stands on its own merits."
