West Point chapel hosts its first same-sex wedding

Pretty neat story. If you need a reason to cheer Army versus Navy, here it is

WEST POINT, N.Y. Cadet Chapel, the landmark gothic church that is a center for spiritual life at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point, was hosting its first same-sex wedding Saturday.
Penelope Gnesin and Brenda Sue Fulton, a West Point graduate, were exchanging vows in the regal church in an afternoon ceremony attended by around 250 guests and conducted by a senior Army chaplain.



The rest of the story is pretty interesting also.

1. I wish them long life and happiness

I am also very glad this is a long-term relationship. When I clicked the link I was worried they were current cadets...which would result in the Army's first same-sex divorce because trainee marriages are about as successful as Republican tax schemes.
