Second that. Where did you go thru basic? Certainly not at Lackland with the rest of us. A unit full of out-processing homos? Was that next to the unicorn flight?
FWIW No one much likes serving next to airman Gaga, but I haven’t met him/her yet, thank God. There a few homos we all know about. They keep it to themselves. Long as that happens, we’re the military. We do take whole “duty” and “following orders” thing pretty serious and it’s pretty offensive to accuse us of murder. Everyone likes to tell stories about guys falling off ships but it’s always “my best friend’s, neighbor’s, uncle” who saw it happen.

Lackland 1966. Yes, a barracks of out-processing homos. When they went through the chow line some had on necklaces, lipstick, ect.
Our TI came off his authoritarian position for a few minutes and said that things went on in THAT barracks too disgusting to mention.
Not always. I was in 13 years 1976 to 1988 and I can remember one incident particularly because I was interviewed by the NIS afterwards. In that case, a guy really did go off the portside aft sponsor at night.
That one was eventually ruled a suicide and it might have actually been one, too. But he was queer and annoying people about it so the scuttlebutt going around that he was helped over the side.
In another case that made a big splash in the Navy Times, a squid took a ball-peen hammer to the head of a person in his division that had taken homosexual liberties on him after they had smoked some dope together in a fanroom.
