Tell It to the Marines!

“There were a few gay girls who lived in the barracks. . . . The other gay girls had affairs with each other in the barracks, and ‘hit’ on other girls in the barracks. This really freaked out some of the Marines. We were all very young, and inexperienced in these types of situations.
“It was very disruptive, and very distracting. It hurt military cohesion. Since the girls who were trouble makers knew they could be thrown out of the military, they were somewhat careful not to over-step certain limits on their behavior.
“If gay behavior in the military is permitted, there will not be any reprimand for this type of behavior.”
