Former Italian NATO Commander Says Gays Unfit for the Army

DelvecchioItalian NATO Commander Mauro Del Vecchio says “gays in the army are unsuitable” in an interview by Italian writer and columnist Klaus Davi scheduled to air online today, AGI News reports:

Says Del Vecchio: “I respect any legitimate and lawful choice by a person — but I believe that in a structure like the army, where activities are always carried out together, it is advisable not to declare or reveal one’s homosexuality. Also in my career I have encountered homosexual incidents and I acted in such a way that these situations would not happen again and those involved were relocated and employed in other areas. In any case, I have never dismissed anybody from the army for being gay.”
