(Reuters) - The Department of Defense will allow active duty members of all branches of the U.S. military to don their service uniforms while marching in the upcoming San Diego gay pride parade, event organizers said on Thursday.
The move, announced the day before the weekend festivities are to begin, comes in the wake of a repeal that went into effect last September of the "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" law, under which homosexuals were allowed to serve in the military only if they did not divulge their sexual orientation.
San Diego has a large military presence due to its naval base and the nearby Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton.
"We are hopeful that those who have feared coming to share in the joy of Pride out of concern for losing their military careers will be able to finally celebrate their full and complete selves," San Diego LGBT Pride, the organizer of the event, said in a statement.

This is total crap.
Queer Panetta’s orders know doubt.
And if this trend continues nationally, we will have damaged our national defense immeasurably.
America - a good idea while it lasted.
Where’s the MEGA BARF warning?
Can they march in a pro life parade in their uniforms? Can they attend Tea Party rallies in their uniforms?
I would never serve in today’s military.
I can’t believe how much things have changed since I got out of the Navy in the mid nineties.
They should not be allowed to wear their uniforms. Period.
“Pathetic. A couple of my coworkers who have teenage sons graduating this year from high school have decided to avoid having anything to do with the military since it’s become a homosexual playground for both sexes. How awfully sad. “
Everyone now has to be really careful in the shower...
This is total BS. You can’t attend a political event in uniform, but they make an exemption for a rally advocating prideful buggery.
The bill of goods we were sold was that it was all going to be “equal” with no special treatment. That lie lasted what, a few months?
What a farce. Thank God I retired before this BS started. I always thought it might make me proud to have one of my children follow me in a military career, but now? I’ll be relieved if they decide against it, and frankly, I’ll tell them I wouldn’t do it again.
Being a veteran myself, I find this so so sad that morale will collapse with homosexuals strutting around daring heterosexual soldiers to object to any of their disgusting behavior.
This turns my stomach. We have sunk to a new low. The military of the past is gone forever, sad to say.
RE. have teenage sons graduating this year from high school have decided to avoid having anything to do with the military
Social engineering works? welcome the future
They may get shot doing that!
Don’t mess with the Armed Forces like that. They don’t like that crap.
I guess that was kinda the idea.
Hear the word of the LORD,
princes of Sodom!
Listen to the instruction of our God,
people of Gomorrah!
What care I for the number of your sacrifices?
says the LORD.
I have had enough of whole-burnt rams
and fat of fatlings;
In the blood of calves, lambs and goats
I find no pleasure.
When you come in to visit me,
who asks these things of you?
Trample my courts no more!
Bring no more worthless offerings;
your incense is loathsome to me.
New moon and sabbath, calling of assemblies,
octaves with wickedness: these I cannot bear.
Your new moons and festivals I detest;
they weigh me down, I tire of the load.
When you spread out your hands,
I close my eyes to you;
Though you pray the more,
I will not listen.
Your hands are full of blood!
Wash yourselves clean!
Put away your misdeeds from before my eyes;
cease doing evil; learn to do good.
Make justice your aim: redress the wronged,
hear the orphan’s plea, defend the widow.
If this turns your stomach, how do you think God feels. The USA will NEVER win another war as long as these infidels are in He has not written Ichabod on Lady Liberty.
If this turns your stomach, how do you think God feels. The USA will NEVER win another war as long as these infidels are in charge. We had better hope that He has not written Ichabod on Lady Liberty.
Everybody check your lock and prepare to load.
Should there be any vandals, Huns, or goths at the city gate we are on our own.
The Department of Defense will allow active duty members of all branches of the U.S. military to don their service uniforms while marching in the upcoming San Diego gay pride parade, event organizers said on Thursday.
“Allow” or require?
I’m so, so glad I left the military in 1984. It sickens me now. I’ve three sons who serve or served.....I could no longer recommend the military to anyone.
This whole thing makes me want to puke.
There is nothing this administration will not politicize in search of votes even the military.What’s next, uniforms at black empowerment and feminist parades? Disgusting
Gays are 2% of the population.... And of that 2% not all want to go into the military. Gay propagandists want us to believe gays outnumber straights - it’s not true. WE need to take a deep breath - it’s 98 straights for every 2 gays.
Can’t wear your uniform to a political rally/protest, or say “Jesus” at a prayer meeting, but by golly you sure can appear at the gay-pride event in uniform!
You used the word "gay" twice in your comment to me. They are homosexuals, pure and simple. "Gay" means happy. I'm not criticizing you as much as I have contempt for all the media, including FOX news and Rush, etc., who keep using GAY to describe these sodomites.
If they're so proud of being disgusting perverts, then they should be thrilled to be labeled "homosexuals." It's grossly misleading, especially to our children who're getting indoctrinated everyday into accepting these pillow-biters as "GAY" . . . kind of a happy term . . . when they should always be called what they are: SODOMITES or HOMOSEXUALS.
We really haven’t won a war since WWII and shortly after this war, the homosexuals started to organize to take over this country.
especially since they'll be marching along side near naked ugly men simulating sex.
that is their perversion...their immorality....
the whole armed forces is being destroyed because now we have sanctioned homos and they will not be disciplined...
God help the young soldiers who have a drill instructor who's a homo....or a commanding officier....there will be no peace and no justice because now the homos are immune...
