The Names Who Served
QUESTION 1/7: For the most part, are military women today still being assigned duties of less dignity, status or recognition than males in their units who have identical occupational training codes?
QUESTION 2/7: During WW2 and Korea it was commonly stated by males that most military women were either lesbians or sex slaves for their commanding officers. Did you witness lesbianism during your military service? (This is a two-part question.)
2a. Yes, a lot
2a. Yes, occasionally
2a. Yes, rarely
Did you witness other females providing sex service for their male superiors?
2b. Yes, a lot
2b. Yes, occasionally
2b. Yes, rarely
QUESTION 3/7: Some males in the military believe that females in the military use their sex to gain special privileges, lighter duty assignments or to manipulate the males in their unit. Did you witness any of the above?
Yes, some women I knew took advantage of males in our unit
Yes, but rarely
QUESTION 4/7: In all of the four service branches Basic Combat Training is intended to provide male soldiers the basic combat skills to survive in war. The Army, for example, often utilizes female Drill Sergeants in its Basic Combat Training course that all new soldiers must complete. However, the Army does not assign females to combat duty. Do you think that allowing females who never served in combat to teach men about combat may later make men in combat theaters resentful and spiteful of the non-combat women in their units, creating a level of hostility that might lead to some form of abusive action by males towards females in their unit?
Yes, very much so
Yes, but not common
No, some males will be abusive under any circumstances
QUESTION 5/7: Some politicians who advocate 'coed' lifestyles, residences, training and employment in the U.S. military believe that the highly structured and ordered military environment can be regulated either through the UCMJ or through command directives in such a way that military males and females working together are capable of totally and completely removing sex from their interactions. Do you agree?
Yes, military males and females possess the ability to 'turn off' all sexual thoughts or impulses in military situations where conflict or mission harm might result
No, the idea is preposterous
QUESTION 6/7: Some politicians who advocate allowing homosexuals to serve openly in the U.S. military believe that the highly structured and ordered military environment can be regulated either through the UCMJ or through command directives in such a way that homosexuals sharing community shower rooms, lavatories and barracks with heterosexuals or fellow homosexuals are capable of totally and completely removing sex from their interactions with heterosexuals or fellow homosexuals. Do you agree?
Yes, homosexuals have the ability to 'turn off' all sexual thoughts or impulses in military situations where conflict or mission harm might result
No, the idea is preposterous.
QUESTION 7/7: During WW2 Asian-Americans, African-Americans and females were believed to be inferior to white, male Americans in every respect and were segregated into separate units to see how well or poorly they functioned against hostile enemy contacts in comparison to units comprised of Caucasians (Hispanics were classified as Cascasian during WW2.). During WW2 the two Asian-American units (442 RCT and 100 MIS) became the most decorated units of that war. And, regardless of the degree of valor demonstrated by an African-American or his combat unit, not a single black GI was permitted to be awarded the Medal of Honor during WW2 because it was believed that bestowing our Nation's highest military award to a black American would harm the morale of white GI's. Although there are no senior African-American, Asian-American or female generals currently serving in the Pentagon, Iraq or Afghanistan, has racial and sexual prejudice been completely eliminated in today's military?
