Command Sargent Major of the Marine Corps Michael Barrett
"Article 1, Section 8 of the Constitution is 
pretty simple. It says, 'Raise an army.
' It says absolutely nothing about race, 
color, creed, sexual orientation. You all 
joined for a reason: to serve. To protect 
our nation, right? How dare we, then, 
exclude a group of people who want to 
do the same thing you do right now, 
something that is honorable and noble? 
Right? Get over it. We’re magnificent, 
we’re going to continue to be. Let’s just 
move on, treat everybody with firmness,
 fairness, dignity, compassion and respect. 
Let’s be Marines." - Command Sergeant 
Major of the Marine Corps, Michael Barrett
speaking to troops in South Korea.
