I suppose I am dubious because, as a Canadian, our military comes from roughly the same background, allowed queer servicemembers in 1992 (three years before the book was published) and certainly never did anything like "[becoming] open about the strong element of homo-eroticism in the armed forces." We just had queer servicemembers.

So I am wondering if Zeeland is identifying something special about the USF that's different from the CF, despite their intensely shared history and similar cultures, that would require that, or lead to that particular fear in face of evidence in other countries to the contrary. (Or if it's another case of "wait, other countries are DIFFERENT from us?" which also happens.)
