      Often we--are denied all sorts of resources because of our "small numbers" so it's okay to put us on the back burner or even just ignore us--so the small comment hit a sore spot you wouldn't be aware of.

      I am not so sure how few or many gay people there are in the service any more. But I will say even back in the day I encountered more than a few in every command. More gay people than women.

      Gentlemen, congratulations. You're everything we've come to expect from years of government training (Zed, MIB).
