There were always problems , but most never got beyond Unit level straightening out.

Some Gay Men were always there , but most others did not know they were Gay - believe it or not. That particular situation is about to end.
I don't really know what you are talking about. There are far greater men than women in the military still so men are still carrying the much greater load in combat. As far as accomodating to women, yes, it was partly a social welfare program.
