Abstract : President Barack Obama, the Commander-in-Chief, has committed to work with Congress to bring about the modification of the existing law which excludes openly gay and lesbian persons from serving in the United States military. When this change occurs, the United States military must have a comprehensive strategy ready to address the probable issues that may arise as the result of such a change. This paper examines a way for our military institutions to move forward towards a functional implementation of a new policy based on a greater understanding and acceptance of one another, while keeping in mind the fundamental purpose for which our military institution exists - to fight and win our nations wars.
