Obviously, this is direct from the Gen. Pace school of recruiting. I'm a little at a loss to understand why the recruiter--upon determining that the potential recruitee was openly gay--didn't just move on to the next candidate. Instead, she launched into an increasingly racist and bigotry-filled email exchange (using her military email address) over three days. This is the best and the brightest the military has to recruit new members into their desperately stretched-thin forces?
Corey Andrew had his profile and resume posted at Careerbuilder.com, and it caught the eye of Army recruiter Marcia Ramode, who contacted him. He wasn't interested in a position in the military, particularly because of the ban on gays and lesbians in the military.
When Andrew informed Ramode that he is gay, and believed that the DADT policy was wrong, the two engaged in a three-day email exchange that included statements by Ramode, in her official capacity as a recruiter, that boggle the mind. (Jersey Journal):
"GO BACK TO AFRICA AND DO YOUR GAY VOODOO LIMBO TANGO AND WANGO DANCE AND JUMP AROUND AND PRANCE AND RUN ALL OVER THE PLACE HALF NAKED THERE."
