There is very little written about the involvement of gays and lesbians in the 20th century military. No surprise there. But, same-gender loving people did serve in America’s military throughout all its wars because they existed throughout all its society.
One of the secondary characters in my book: Long Way Home: A World War II Novel is a hard-nosed, by-the-book, recruit trainer. His name is Sergeant Robert Moses, a career soldier, a Negro and a gay man.
In a few chapters of my novel Moses describes his feelings about being a gay man and how it affects his relationship with the Army, his family and his lover.
I talk about this issue on my YouTube channel. Let me know what you think!
