I did four in the Navy with some ‘Nam including some hunker-in-the-bunker time with live ammo close at hand. There were gays in every one of my units, and we knew, and they knew we knew. They were still my friends, and it just never was an issue.

The results of this survey were absolutely unsurprising to me, and reflected my own experience. That said, if gays come out in the Marines, they will probably be dead Marines.
