    Telling them I'm gay so that I don't recieve as harsh a punishment/discharge for them finding out on their own.

    If this is a flat-out, you told your CC...he had no idea, you were not officially under investigation...then you normally would get an honorable.

    If they are arlready investigating you for something (not simply for BEING gay...) then...depends on what that is and what kind of goods they got on you...were you caught in the act in the parking lot or something?

    Either way...this would be a good time to contact your ADC. (Probably should have done it before you sent the email). Whether you are under investigation...or will simply be honorably discharged...the ADC will assist you.

    Re: Coming Out

    Obviously every case is unique, but I've worked alongside many gay people in my career who "didn't flaunt it" and no one who they didn't want to know was aware of their sexual orientation. That's not to say they were living a lie; they just didn't make their personal lives anyone's business.

    If you really weren't flaunting it, then no one would know and there would be no reason to self incriminate. That is, unless you wanted out of the military...

    Not really, actually I want to join the reserves and finish out my 20 years with them.

    Oh. In that case, I'm afraid you may have shot yourself in the foot. I really don't know anything about the legal system other than off-duty employment though, so my word is worth jack.

    I don't flaunt my heterosexuality...but everyone in my office knows I'm married and carrying on a heterosexual lifestyle.

    Unfortunately once you outted yourself there is nothing any branch can do, AD, Reserve, or ANG. If you remember there was a statement that you signed off on the very first visit to your recruiters office, the statement is call The Applicant Briefing on Separation Policy. You may want to look at that to see what the possible punishments could be.
