But it's worth it!
'Don't Ask, Don't Tell' Cost $363M:
So, the commission focused on the estimated value the military lost from each person discharged. The report detailed costs of $79.3 million for recruiting enlisted service members, $252.4 million for training them, $17.8 million for training officers and $14.3 million for "separation travel" once a service member is discharged.Look on the bright side: It would have cost the military a hell of a lot more once these nancies started requisitioning supplies from Pottery Barn and Banana Republic. Some people may say that you can't put a price on freedom, but $363 million to keep the bungholes of America's servicemen free from any untoward scrutiny by these people strikes me as quite a bargain. Praise Him!
