The U.S. military services presently restrict homosexual individuals from entering the armed forces, and discharge gay service members once they have been discovered to be homosexual. As a result of recent social, judicial and political change within the United States, increasing pressure has been placed on the U.S. military to reevaluate and change its homosexuality-related regulations. This paper summarizes recent homosexuality-related changes in America, defines homosexuality and analyzes the extent of homosexuality in the military, examines the military's position, and explores the implications of a military policy change which would permit military service by homosexual men and women.
