Navy chaplains to perform gay marriages

WASHINGTON D.C. (KAIT) - The Navy is planning on allowing its chaplains to perform same-sex marriages once the military's ban on gay marriage ends this summer.

A memo released by the Navy's head chaplain says: "Regarding the use of base facilities for same-sex marriages, legal counsel has concluded that generally speaking, base facility use is sexuality orientation neutral. If the base is located in a state where same-sex is legal, then base facilities may normally be used to celebrate the marriage."
