Historic: West Point Hosts Wedding Between Two Men For The First Time

Another gleaming sign of just how far we've come in the past five years took place at West Point Academy, where its chapel hosted, for the first time ever, the wedding of a gay couple. 

The AP reports:

Two West Point graduates were married Saturday in the military academy's first wedding between two men.

Larry Choate III, class of 2009, married Daniel Lennox, class of 2007, before about 20 guests.

Choate, 27, taught Sunday school at the U.S. Military Academy's Cadet Chapel and said he always thought of it as the place he would get married if he could.

Choate and Lennox are out of the military and wore tuxedoes for the ceremony. Some of their guests were in uniform.

"It's maybe one more barrier that's pushed over a little bit, or maybe one more glass ceiling that's shattered that makes it easier for the next couple," Choate said Friday.

The first time the military academy hosted the wedding of a same-sex couple occurred in 2012, however, when two women tied the knot a year after marriage equality became law in New York state.
