Clinton and Gays in the Military

In the outcry to protect military morale from the perceived embarrassment of admitting gays and lesbians into the service, we should not lose sight of the disastrous consequences of heterosexual conduct by our military inflicted on people in foreign countries. As a member of the Pearl Buck Foundation, which tries to help the multitude of half-orphans in the East, I am aware of the condition of 23,000 Filipino children and their mothers, callously left behind in abject poverty, or of the thousands abandon ed in South Korea, Thailand, and Guam. So generals and admirals, where should your real concern be? Hermine Dahmen, Austin, Texas
