Trees aren’t what they’re looking to hump.
BTW, my daddy is a three-war Marine, and he said they’ve always tolerated homos as long as they did their jobs.
Then, again, my daddy’s no bigot.

Cool! If he’s still with us please give him my sincere regards and thanks. Sounds like we’ve got similar stories. Mine joined on his 17th birthday in 42, and retired in 69. He was in the Pacific for WWII. He told me that at the end of the war he spent about 80 days on a troop ship, on their way to invade Japan. He said “they dropped the bomb, the war was over, and that was all right with your father.”
In Korea he was mobile air traffic control. I have pictures of him with a big radar truck that they’d drive up to some hilltop and guide aircraft.
In Vietnam he was one of the early arrivals into Chu Lai, where he had some capacity in the design and construction of the air traffic control system for the air base.
After that he was an air traffic control instructor for a few years until retirement.
Every time I talk to someone whose father was a pilot in Korea or Nam I wonder if our fathers ever spoke to each other, even if briefly air to ground.
