My husband is an alumnus of NAVY. We plan to be inurned at the USNA Columbarium when our time comes. I’m
also proud to say that my husband is a straight ally member of USNA OUT. I pray that organizations like this, and the repeal of DADT will soon bring us closer to real equality for LGBT citizens.

oh, and BEAT ARMY!!

Wow what an awesome story, I love how once it was proven that they were married, everything went just fine and there was no argument over a veterans funeral.

Why, why WHY…don’t the anti marriage equality crowd understand that this situation hurts nothing, takes nothing away from heteros, nor does society suffer for extending such benefits to gay couples.

Indeed, we would honor the legacy of justice and equality by that extension. History would cherish such outcomes and at sunset, there is never anything bad, dishonorable or threatening that equal justice has ever committed.
