***I’m guessing your understanding of the U.S. military stems from an overconsumption of hollywood movies. ****

Not hardly. I spent Four Years in the USAF, talked with others who served in other branches, have shown me all have a general disgust of homos. Not to mention that we were all required to report for military classes once each year and given a heavy dose of anti-homo warnings.

And one former navy man, many years ago, told me of a certain sailor on his ship who was “lost at sea”.

Interesting anecdote, but the men with whom I served never so much as joked about that sort of thing. Maybe it’s a different time given we are in an actual shooting war. Walking around with a loaded weapon tends to cut down on the finger quotation marks and the winks and nods.

That's the way it was in WW-II ... regarding blacks.

After the war, President Truman integrated the military, and that's worked out well.
