The problem of homosexuality in the Armed Forces is briefly discussed. A critique of the present approach to the problem is offered. In the light of observations made in a controlled clinical study, and a review of four years' experience with 458 cases, a number of suggestions are offered for a new approach. These include: 1. Modification of punitive official attitudes; 2. Elimination of routine extensive investigations; 3. Establishment of the primary disorder as the basis for discharge; 4. Elimination of the special stigma; 5. Utilization of benign investigation procedures; and 6. Fulfillment of present potentially liberal retention policies.
