    I'm not sure but I THINK being gay in the Navy IS considered misconduct.

    There used to be an old joke they threw at us. 3000 sailors depart on tour. 1500 couples return.

    I don't know what the break down was but if you admiited to being gay that i a violation of DADT.........I expect a lot of gays admitted to being gay even if they were not to get out of the Navy....

    Yeah, it's the problem with the question. Let me rephrase, how many of those got discharged for something other than simply being homosexual?

    And when Clinton got elected shortly before I got out, the joke was "Navy, it's not just a job, it's a date".

    Sorry Im just responding to the last page. As far as I can tell they can only kick you out if you disclose that you are a homosexual. You can be a flaming queer in the military and as long as nobody asks or nobody tells you are just fine.

    I knew some guys on the east coast that went UA and turned themselves in in San Diego just so they could go WesPac.

    I also knew some guys that were straight as an arrow but would have no problem french kissing the old man if they thought they could get a discharge out of it. Kinda like Klinger on M.A.S.H.

    I knew guys that would have NEVER smoked pot but did just so they could pop their piss test and get out.

    I knew one guy, Rusty, that got buck naked and started firing his piece off into the water just so he could get out on a mental.

    If all it takes to get out these days is to walk up and say, "I'm queer," how easy is that? I wonder if they have to prove it? Do they have to be Liza Minelli fans? Do they gotta blow the O.I.C., or what?

    Failing a drug test was the most common way to get yourself an easy discharge when I was in. The problem of course was that some people just had trouble getting their number called. We had one guy freely admitted every chance he got that he was smoking weed to get out, and yet he went 8 months(each with a random 20 % piss test) before his number finally got called. Then they held him for the duration of a full cruise before finalizing his discharge.

    I think you have to be handsome or a flamer.

    And easy to report and punish, again, making it something unlikely to happen often. It is even less likely than an advance made against female service members. Adults handle these things, right?

    You miss the point. Completely. It's a violation even among heterosexuals, yet they are allowed to serve, right?
