The Petition is amended as follows:
The United States of America, a nation built on equal rights, presently denies the right of professing homosexuals to actively serve their country forcing men and women who are gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender to assure a "don't ask, don't tell" position when enlisting into military service.  This situation is discriminatory, unethical and regrettable; therefore, we affirm the stance that the U.S. military should not exclude persons from service solely on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity.
