"Don't ask, don't tell" seems a distant echo.
Pentagon lets service members march in uniform at gay pride parade for first time (foxnews.com)
CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. – The Defense Department on Thursday announced it is allowing service members to march in uniform in a gay pride parade for the first time in U.S. history.
In a memorandum sent to all its branches, the department said it was making the allowance for San Diego's Gay Pride Parade on Saturday even though its policy generally bars troops from marching in uniform in parades.
The Defense Department said it did so because organizers had encouraged military personnel to march in their uniform and the event was getting national attention.
