DADT, 2K1 Style: The Army’s LGBT Policy Comic Book

Never say the Army isn’t creative.

In 2001, the Army found a fun way to describe the Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy to troops: They published a full-color comic book.

The comic book reviews discharge proceedings, harassment, what counts as “credible information” about a soldier’s sexuality. Most of the action in the book is conversations between camouflage-clad service members, but the authors jazzed it up with wacky angles and lots of images of open-mouthed soldiers asking questions.The Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy forbids openly gay men and lesbians from serving in the military. The policy has changed somewhat since 2001, but the basic idea is the same.

Anyway, without further ado, (and with credit to Comics With Problems) enjoy:
