During the transition to the future all-gay armed forces, things will be awkward for the career soldiers who are hanging in there for a pension. You'll hear this sort of exchange when they finally retire:
Soldier: "I was deployed in the desert for three years."
Friend: "Are you gay?"
Soldier: "No, but thank goodness the guy who shared my tent was."
