Retro Cartoon: Gays vs Felons in the Military
Speaking of Newsweek, in the most current edition they have an article about the potential end (but seemingly unlikely) of the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy when it comes to gays in the service.
This was interesting because in 2007 I was reading articles about the number of “Moral Waivers” were on the rise. Essentially someone convicted of a felony could get a waiver to join the military. I found this odd that the military was OK with felons but not homosexuals serving openly in the army, navy, air force, and marine corp. So back then I drew the below cartoon that was published in November 2007 edition of the now defunct Cincinnati Beacon monthly paper.
