This article only tells part of the story.
When Gen Amos testified before the Senate Armed Services Committee last December, he pledged to, "step out smartly" if the law was changed.
True to his word, the Commandant released a statement on DADT repeal on 19 December 2010 stating that he would "personally lead this effort, thus ensuring the respect and dignity due all Marines." Last month, Gen Amos and the Sergeant Major of the Marine Corps released the following video message to their Marines stressing that all Marines will be treated with dignity and respect and calling upon the discipline and professionalism of our Corps leaders.
On this matter, we look forward to further demonstrating to the American people the discipline and loyalty that have been the hallmark of the United States Marine Corps for over 235 years.
Major Joe Plenzler, USMC
