Being 'openly gay' before the late 1960s in the U.S. (and most European countries, too) was a complete no-no. If any man had been obviously gay in the military there would have been really serious trouble. There was an absolute **Horror** of homosexuality that is now hard to imagine. So, none were openly gay. In Britain, Quentin Crisp - who was openly gay, with feminine mannerisms, who often wore make up and so on - had a bit of a rough time in 1939. He was subjected to a humiliating medical, after which one of the army doctors said, "Male and female created He them". Crisp's papers were stamped in large letters "Exempted from military service on grounds of SEXUAL PERVERSION". That may convey something of the flavour of attitudes at the time - and they were no different in the U.S.
