The Marine Corps continues to see no ill effects from the policy that change earlier this year that allows gays and lesbians to serve without having to hide their sexual orientation.

So says the commandant of the Marine Corps, Gen. Jame Amos, who told the National Press Club in Washington this week that he “doesn’t even get a question” from troops about the policy change.

“I don’t think there is a problem,” said Amos, who had opposed the repeal of the military’s “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy in congressional hearings in advance of the change.
