Top aide to General Petraeus Command Sergeant Major Marvin Hill told US troops who cannot support the repeal of Clinton’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy to leave the military.
The Huffington Post reported:
Troops who can’t accept the idea of overturning the ban on gays in the military should consider leaving the service, says a senior aide to Gen. David Petraeus.
Command Sergeant Major Marvin Hill tells TV One’s “Washington Watch” that he believes “the troops are ready” for the repeal of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.
“If there are people who cannot deal with the change, then they’re going to have to do what’s best for their troops and best for the organization and best for the military service and exit the military service, so that we can move forward — if that’s the way that we have to go,” Hill says in an interview with Roland Martin, scheduled to air Sunday.
Hill says it will be up to military brass to “set the tone” for the rank-and-file in accepting gay service members.
