Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Isn't that cute?? :)

    She's in the army reserves. Who cares, she is serving her country - that's what matters.Should get a few right wing republicans frothing at their mouths!

    Smith becomes first gay general officer to serve openly - News - Stripes

    Do you Brits have any gay generals who've come out of the closet in recent years?

  2. Well as long as she's good enough for the position and hasn't been promoted just because she's a lesbian does it matter?
     
  3. Reading her Army bio (not yet updated as to new rank and assignment) she holds a reserve commission but is, and has been for most if not all of her career a full time active duty reserve officer. Looking at the bio I noted a Bronze Star and Combat Action Badge.

    Leadership - Smith Tammy (US Army Reserve)

    Best of luck to her in her new duties.

  9. This will be a terrible blow to moral. All those closeted Colonel's swishing about and a lady beats them to it.

  10. Seems some care enough to start a thread on it.
     
  11. She looks quiet proud standing there with her brother , I`d soon straighten her out...if I`d got two bags with me.

  12. To go off on a tangent a bit but is it PC to refer to her as gay?

    If she is a member of the LBGT (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) fraternity then she must then be the first openly lesbian general?

    Not up on my bender nomenclature TBH but thought it mildly interesting in a not interersting at all really sort of way as to what these perverts (sorry I meant "other oriented") define themselves as.
     
  13. Not so sure she is gay, but she does look quite jolly.
     
  14. I wonder who will be the first openly onanist general in the United States? That would be a pretty stiff competition.

    There are already some seriously onanist high-level politicians in the US. Why bother about generals?
