Army Overwhelmed by DADT Recruits

The Pentagon, VA -- The US Department of Defense has observed a huge increase in recruitment efforts since the "Don't Ask Don't Tell" law was repealed, allowing openly gay men and women to serve in the armed forces. Recruitment offices around the country have reportedly been "overwhelmed" with gay applicants volunteering to serve in the US Military.

"I've been a recruiter for over 10 years and I've never seen anything like this," noted a recruiting Sergeant from Indiana, who asked not to be named. "They were lined up around the corner when I came in today. Hundreds of them waiting quietly and patiently for their turn to serve their country."

He continued, "A soldier's life can be hard - dangerous and exhausting. It takes a good deal of selflessness. You sign up to possibly sacrifice your life so that others in your country can continue to enjoy the blessings of freedom. You crawl through mud. You get shot at. Homosexuals just seem a natural fit."

Sociologists and other experts in human behavior have not been as surprised, however. Dr. Stan Ramble notes, "Poll after poll has shown that many homosexuals want to serve in the military and the only thing stopping them has been DADT. Several years ago, a gay man I know told me he wanted to become an Army Ranger and had a dilemma. He either had to lie about his lifestyle or choose a different career. He really wanted to test himself to the limits of human resiliency and prove to himself that he has what it takes to become one of the best soldiers in the world, in the best military in the world. In the end, he decided on his second choice and became a hairdresser, but he has lived with regret ever since."
