The old "gays in the military" phrase from 1993 has been replaced


The number of Muslims in the US military is relatively small, but now the group gets attention that recalls the climate in 1993 when “gays in the military” was greeted by some with political shock. Thomas Gibbons-Neff as a Washington Post story “For Muslims in the U.S. Military, a Different U.S. than the One they Swore to Defend”.  There was the one big incident at Ford Hood in 2009.
 
As for more local news, AGLA held a Holiday Party (and huge raffle) Tuesday Freddie’s Beach Bar in Arlington (it’s pretty near the Pentagon) and the owner sported out his “drag show best” with an unusual blazer.
