The Financial Cost of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell":

Under "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," more than 10,000 Americans serving the country in the military have been expelled for homosexuality. A new study sponsored by the University of California has found that in the period from 1994 to 2003, the cost of discharging and replacing gay service members was at least $363.8 million. That figure, which the researchers say is a low-ball estimate, is 91% higher than the estimate released by the General Accounting Office a year ago.

I'll look through the report in detail and report more later. In the meantime it can be found at http://www.gaymilitary.ucsb.edu/Publications/2006-02BlueRibbonFinalRpt.pdf.
