Keep in mind that not all gay men are feminine. I'll bet you were surrounded by them if you were in the service.

I know that a lot of gays are very masculine........In my 21 years I personallt saw many gay men who were very masculine who made sexual advances at straight men and were kicked out of the navy with and Undersireable Discharge............

I don't really blame them, they could not help theirselves.......

I bet letting soldiers have sex, regardless of their preference, would increase morral. It's not gay people that decrease morral..it's pent up sexual frustration.

I have to disagree with you there...being gay is no excuse for indiscriminately hitting on anyone you feel like. If it is against policy to make advances toward a coworker, then it is against policy and YOU are responsible for adhering to those policies, gay or straight.

My dad was drafted into Vietnam.
When he went through in processing with a bus full of
other guys, the first thing they were told was,
"OK, none of this I'm gay and I want out bullshit".
