1. I would't really call most of the military "The Best of the best" if we're talking about special forces then yes.

2. There are other jobs in the military hell I have a friend whos job in the military is to make sure people get their checks.

All true statements, although I still am not convinced that being trans falls too heavily in the mentally ill category. As some have pointed out being homosexual once upon was thought to be a mental illness in the DSM...but that's mostly unfounded. I still think the topic of transgender individuals serving is a serious non-issue and anyone who is seriously considering a ban on them is probably taking more away from the mission at hand than anyone who is for them serving.
