    "Anticipating the elimination of the military ban on homosexuality, the Office of the Chief of Navy Chaplains has decided that same-sex couples in the Navy will be able to get married in Navy chapels, and that Navy chaplains will be allowed to perform the ceremonies -- if homosexual marriage is legal in the state where the unions are to be performed."


    Amazing! "...base facility use is sexual orientation neutral."

    If this is true..Then how long before the other branches of arm services will start doing same sex unions?..
    About time..But will they have the same rights as straight people have on land,or will it be only while they are in active duty and at sea?

    How many gay MARINES are willing to un butch them selves,and be just a regular joe/jar head..
    How many Navy Seal's will be willing to do the same?..

    The AIR FORCE,has always been sort of a higher class above the other branches..I can see same sex unions in the AIR FORCE..

    Hope it become's legal,and no harriasment..

    The AP story headline (on yahoo news this morning) claims that this "reverses all the good achieved by the SEALs last week."

    I don't think there will be too many takers to have a religious setting for their same sex marriage.

    Wow, I didn't see this coming. It is encouraging, but I doubt this is the end of the story. After all, DOMA is still Federal Law. As such, I suspect that even if Navy chaplains perform these wedding ceremonies, that the couple will not receive any federally recognized benefits, which for service members are significant.

    Divers community really do look like that. All broad-shouldered, hunky, and beefy. The regular younger sailors (18-24), most have amazing bodies. When you're on a boat you have all the time in the world to work out. It's the older, married ones who have been in for a while that let their bodies go.

    Once again. PROGRESS halted by REPUBLICANS.

    It's time for Gay Republicans to briefly pause their attack on progressives......and fight for our common rights.
