The 4 Gay Pride Rules For Air Force Reservists

Uniformr

No political activity, says Lt. Gen.

It's gay pride in San Diego this weekend! Though the Navy's presence dominates this California town, there are still plenty of Air Force reservists around, and many of those men and women will be marching in uniform this weekend, more evidence of a post-DADT world. But they do so under strict guidelines. Here are the four sent sent to Air Force reservists by Lt. Gen. James "JJ" Jackson, head of the Air Force Reserves.

1. Members may only participate in personal, off-duty capacity; and, members adhere to proper appearance and uniform wear standards, as well as proper conduct standards while in military uniform, before/during/after participation in the parade while in uniform; and,

2. No "political activity" while in uniform or conduct/speech that others may view as "officially endorsed" by DoD/USAF/AFRC; and,

3. Behave with dignity when in uniform, observing all military courtesies while in uniform, as is always required; and,

4. Since Reservists may only participate in a "personal, off-duty capacity," they DO NOT "represent the Air Force Reserve" in any official manner whatever, as a USAF or AFRC spokesperson or otherwise, but should be aware that their actions reflect upon the Department of Defense, the Air Force, and the Air Force Reserve.

Remember the days when being seen in a gay parade was in and of itself political?
