The US Army has finally abandoned the rather silly policy of preventing out homosexuals serving in the Armed forces. I was serving in the regular British army when the Ban on homosexuals was ended in the UK.
The platoon was formed up on the morning of the lifting of the ban, and the statement “…It is no longer acceptable to discriminate on the grounds of Race, Religion, or SEXUALITY…” was read out by the colour Serjeant. He then numbered the men off from the right in twos
One Two One Two…
…And so on
“Number ones turn to your left, twos to your right… LEFT and RIGHT TURN!…”
…Pause for effect…
“…Now give the man in front of you a nice big kiss…”.
Homosexuals in the British military is now a complete non-issue. As, I hope it will be for the USA.
