Sailors Will Wear Uniforms in Pride Parade

Friday, July 20, 2012


First year military personnel will wear uniforms in the parade, spokesperson says

For the first time in San Diego’s history, sailors will march in their uniforms at the annual Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender Pride Parade.

The announcement by a spokesperson for Navy Region Southwest confirmed the authorization, largely made acceptable by this year’s repeal of the federal “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy.”

Prior to his announcement, some servicemembers said they received mixed messages from Naval Medical Center San Diego about this weekend’s parade and Pride celebration.

However, the official decision clarified the confusion, a Navy spokesperson told NBC 7 Wednesday.
