Homosexuality and the United States Military: An Annotated Bibliography of Federal Government Information

by Springs, Gene R.

Abstract (Summary)
This selective annotated bibliography compiles documents made available by the federal United States government with regard to the policy of the United States Armed Forces toward homosexuals. The documents included in this bibliography range from federal regulations, such as Department of Defense directives and instructions, to Presidential executive orders, Congressional hearings, and specific military branch memorandums. While this bibliography is by no means exhaustive, it is intended to aid researchers in locating and identifying pertinent federal documents that explicate the history of the U.S. military’s policy toward homosexuals, from as early as 1953 through the implementation of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy and beyond.
