the oath



Today was a long long day, the wife and I took the kids to "the skull session" at the Ohio state game.(skull session is a way to make pep rally sound more butch). Today was the day that the wife took her oath of enlistment for the Air Force Reserves. I was an emotional mess as she took the oath, I have never been more proud of her. It was hard for me to sit there and watch her as just her friend. It was hard for me to not throw my arms around her when she came off the floor. I am so proud that she wants to do this and I will standby her. I know that she feels this is what she should be doing and I respect that it's just hard for me to understand how she can do this when they would throw her out for just being herself. on that note I should say the wife was in a tshirt with her double Venus symbol tat shining on the back of her neck and her rainbow star showing on her wrist.
It was refreshing to hear Obama say that DADT should go away tonight and I hope it does very very soon. I know that is will be hard to keep my hands off once she is in the new camies!!!!

You guys are awesome. DADT is unbelievable to me in this day. I had a long talk about it this weekend and was amazed at the stories I heard.

Brutus is a crazy lookin mascot -

I think DADT is going away in his first term - and then you guys are going to be in a good place.
Until then - KEEP YOUR HANDS OFF HER!

He said he would sign it, it's just a matter of getting DADT on Obama's desk!
