Air Force Given Thumbs Up To March In San Diego Pride Parade

Members of the Air Force will join the Navy and U.S. Marines to march in the San Diego Pride Parade after receiving approval today.

From a release:

Lt Gen Jackson has approved Air Force Reservists to wear their service dress uniform if they choose to participate in a special military contingent leading the 39th Annual San Diego Pride Parade this Saturday, June 13th. The following provisions shall be observed: 1. Members may only participate in personal, off-duty capacity; and, members adhere to proper appearance and uniform wear standards, as well as proper conduct standards while in military uniform, before/during/after participation in the parade while in uniform; and, 2. No "political activity" while in uniform or conduct/speech that others may view as "officially endorsed" by DoD/USAF/AFRC.

We're waiting to see if the Army and National Guard can join in the Pride ranks to make this SD Pride Parade another for the history books.
