The Defense Department on Thursday, July 19, 2012 announced it is allowing service members to march in uniform in a gay pride parade for the first time in U.S. history. The department said it was making the exception for Saturday's San Diego Gay Pride Parade because organizers had encouraged military personnel to march in their uniform and the event was getting national attention.
