    Summary

    "[...] lesbians and gay men writing letters to their lovers and friends faced the special problem of wartime censorship. Military censors, of course, cut out all information that might aid the enemy, but this surveillance made it necessary for gay and lesbian correspondents to be careful not to expose their homosexuality. To get around this, gay men befriended sympathetic censors or tricked others by using campy phrases, signing a woman’s name (like Dixie or Daisy), or changing the gender of their friends. Sailors became WAVEs, boyfriends became WACs, Robert became Roberta. There must exist, hidden in closets and attics all over America, a huge literature of these World War II letters between lesbians and between gay men that would tell us even more about this important part of American history." - Coming Out Under Fire: The History of Gay Men and Women In World War Two, by Allan Berube

    Summary

    David has thus far refrained, with difficulty, from commenting on the flashlight (he may have mentioned the bears) but he is beginning to suspect that the awful chunky boots and the pocketknife Patrick always seems to have handy are just scratching the surface when it comes to his outdoorsiness. David hasn’t seen a pair of cargo shorts yet, but they haunt his dreams like a khaki Sword of Damocles.
