Navy to Allow Same-Sex Marriage on Base

The Navy has announced that they will allow same-sex marriages to be performed in on-base facilities in states where they are legal.  Navy chaplains may officiate.  This means that, once Don't Ask/Don't Tell is finally dead and buried, gay sailors can get married openly and with pride in their own Navy chapels.  This represents a huge cultural change, it seems to me.  You might even call it a sea-change.
