Gays In The Service? No Problem Says New Studyby Michael Patrick Brewer on Nov. 26, 2009, under Politics, Uncategorized, Veterans Global
Bonnie Moradi, a Psychology professor at the University of Florida in tandem with Laura Miller, a military sociologist with the Rand Corporation have concluded that members of a military unit who discover that a member is gay, does not affect the military readiness or cohesion of the group. The factors that surfaced as much more important then gender,were the quality of leadership, the availability and working condition of equipment and ongoing training.
This revisited analysis suggests that homosexuals could serve openly without impacting the units cohesion, contradicting the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy.
The Senate Armed Services committee will be holding hearings on this issue next year for the first time in 16 years.
