The name reflects the camouflage battle uniforms of four military branches.

Elaine Donnelly, who heads the Center for Military Readiness and worked to keep the ban on gays in the military, said OutServe is showing itself to be divisive.

OutServe is a gay activist group using provocative tactics to advance their agenda in the military, and to establish themselves as a special-interest group pushing self-serving demands,” Mrs. Donnelly said. “Special-interest advocacy groups, which are inherently divisive, are not permitted for any other cohort in the military.”

Gay-rights groups have listed a number of demands since the end of “don’t ask, don’t tell,” including allowing cross-dressers and transsexuals to serve openly, and providing benefits for the spouses of gays.

The Pentagon said it cannot provide such benefits because of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, which defines marriage as the partnership of one man and one woman.
