Come Back, Gay Soldier 

365gay.com reports that the Navy has recalled to duty a sailor they previously discharged for being gay. When they discharged him the Navy took back his $13,000 signing bonus as part of the booting out package. I hope now that they've recalled him for one year in Kuwait (but he's hoping to be able to continue in the service beyond the required time), they'll reinstate his bonus as well.

And by the way, he's no longer concerned about telling and it's not causing unit cohesion problems.
