In this paragraph the introduction is giving the background on Brian Cozart and his likes/dislikes. Which is very general and narrative like. In the policies the writer gives facts with numbers of the evolution of the homosexuality and HIV/AIDS in the military over a span of three decades. Implementing different policies over a timeline which have allowed homosexuals to serve in the military and have become more acceptance of the “gay” and “lesbian” community. The “Dont Ask Don’t Tell” policy that was implemented in 1994 allowed individuals to not disclose their sexual orientation when enlisting in the military. The writer presents detailed facts with a timeline ranging form 1960-2000. Paraphrasing the policies and putting it into chronological order so the reader can understand the evolution of homosexuals in the military. The writer presents briefly the Bill Clinton issue “lift the ban” on homosexuals in the military . I feel the writer is wanting the reader to understand how people thought of homosexuality in the military and many thought of it as an illness. Ultimately, the writer presents many facts and historical events that have taken place to allow the LBGT community to evolve over time.
