Welcome gays, too (Letter to the Editor - scroll down)

I read with interest the March 19 article on the head of the Marine Corps' speech to The Citadel's Corps of Cadets. I was particularly struck by his invitation to the Corps: 'If you join us, we will welcome you with open arms.' What he failed to mention is that if you are gay or lesbian, you need not apply. We have no use for you. This is disingenuous at best.

As a Citadel cadet during the Depression, Hollings worked on survey boats hustling about Charleston Harbor. As a young lawyer, he tutored under Robert Figg, the Ports Authority's general counsel and the author of the Authority's enabling statutes.
