First same-sex marriage being celebrated Saturday at West Pointís Cadet Chapel

Source: FOX

The first same-sex marriage at West Pointís Cadet Chapel will be celebrated Saturday Ė when a military veteran and her partner exchange vows roughly one year after President Obama ended the military policy banning openly gay people from serving in the military.

The ceremony will take place in the Military Academy's Cadet Chapel between Brenda Sue Fulton and Penelope Dara Gnesin.

Fulton is a military veteran and spokeswoman for Outserve Ė an advocacy group for actively serving gay, lesbian and bisexual military personnel, reported first by USA Today.

West Point hosted its first same-sex marriage last weekend, but it was a private ceremony at a smaller campus venue.

2. and on Fort Polk, LA in May of 2012 (became public news in June)

and the world didn't shatter.

On Polk it was a same-sex commitment ceremony, as same-sex marriage is illegal in the state (but commitment ceremonies happen all over LA) - such ceremonies (private religious ceremonies) do NOT violate military rules, however.
