Here's something to brighten your day.

Following the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell," military chaplains will now be allowed to perform same-sex unions either on or off a military installation. It's about time.

The Pentagon says a military chaplain may officiate at any private ceremony, but isn't required if it would conflict with his or her religious or personal beliefs. The Pentagon also says Defense Department property may be used for private functions, including religious and other ceremonies such as same-sex unions, as long as it's not prohibited by state or local laws.
