"An overwhelming 78% indicated that they are "out" to at least some in their unit. Thirty-eight percent said they had come out to more people since the DADT law was repealed. Asked if they would take a significant other to a unit event, 30% said 'definitely,' and another 29% said they 'likely' would. This optimistic response is also reflected in how they expect their units will treat LGB members: two-thirds indicated they expected their colleagues would treat them 'universally' or 'generally' with respect, and free from discrimination."
