West Point Academy Hosts First Same-Sex Weddings

Ad Feedback

The U.S. Military Academy at West Point hosted its first same-sex weddings over the last two weekends.

Both weddings were held in historic campus landmarks, the Cadet Chapel and the Old Cadet Chapel in the campus cemetery.

Army chaplains from other bases performed the ceremonies because the denominations of the West Point chaplains don't allow them to perform same-sex weddings.

New York legalized same-sex marriage last year, only months before the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy was repealed allowing gays to serve openly in the military.
