OKLAHOMA: Marine Corps Has Recruiting Day At Tulsa LGBT Center

Yesterday Marine Corps recruiters fulfilled an invitation to set up a table at Tulsa's LGBT community center.
The Marines were the service most opposed to ending the “don’t ask, don’t tell” policy, but they were the only one of five invited branches of the military to turn up with their recruiting table and chin-up bar at the center Tuesday morning. Although Marines pride themselves on being the most testosterone-fueled of the services, they also ferociously promote their view of themselves as the best. With the law now changed, the Marines appear determined to prove that they will be better than the Army, Navy, Air Force and Coast Guard in recruiting gay, lesbian and bisexual service members.
For different reasons, all three of yesterday's potential applicants were rejected. But not because they were gay.
