The Advocate magazine, a monthly newsmagazine focusing on gay and lesbian issues, will have a cover story about the military’s Don’t Ask Don’t Tell policy. (It’s already online.)

The story focuses in an interview with U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, D-Pa., and a visit to Fort Lewis, where the reporter chatted with a handful of guys about the policy at the PX.

The unscientific poll the reporter conducted showed that many Fort Lewis soldiers didn’t seem to mind serving with gay people. It’s interesting reading.
