United States Marine Corps Commandant General James Amos was the only one of the service chiefs who actively opposed the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." However, he also said that, if it were repealed, the Marine Corps would "step out smartly" to implement the change.

In this video, General Amos - along with USMC Sergeant Major Carlton Kent - explains that the repeal will be implemented through effective leadership and calls on Marines at all levels to show the kind of leadership required.

"We are a nation of laws. We are committed through our oath and core values to abide by these laws. Our success as Marines has always been grounded in the quality of our leadership, from general officers to small unit leaders."
This, ladies and gentlemen, is integrity.
