Canadian Forces’ first gay wedding

The military has marked its first same-sex wedding, more than a decade after gays were allowed to join the Armed Forces.
Two servicemen, who do not want to be named, exchanged vows May 3 at the chapel at CFB Greenwood, N.S., in front of 45 friends and a United Church minister.
Lt.-Cmdr. David Greenwood, the base’s head chaplain, said the couple’s decision to wed at the military chapel might encourage others to step forward and make their vows official in a setting that not long ago had a policy of excluding them. – Canada – Forces’ first gay wedding
