OK, the truth, I knew several gays and lesbians in my 23 years in the Army. What does that do with issues like courage and competence? Most of the homosexuals that got kicked out I saw had other issues, like alcohol. Most were dependable soldiers. As far as being in a combat zone, sex is not an issue, we are all in the fraternity of none- violate that at your own peril.
The sex rules for the military:
1. DO NOT PLAY WHERE YOU WORK.
2. DO NOT HUMP THE HELP
3. DO NOT GET ON YOUR KNEES FOR YOUR BOSS.
Seen a lot of idiots that ignored these and thought they were slick, they were wrong.
