West Point Hosts First Wedding For Male Couple

Choate-LennoxWest Point grads Larry Choate III, class of 2009, and Daniel Lennox, class of 2007, have become the first male couple to be married at the famed military academy. The couple exchanged vows Saturday before 20 guests at the academy’s Cadet Chapel as Chaplain Cynthia Lindenmeyer officiated, according to Associated Press.

“It’s maybe one more barrier that’s pushed over a little bit, or maybe one more glass ceiling that’s shattered that makes it easier for the next couple,” Choate said.

The military academy hosted a pair of same-sex weddings of women last year, but today’s ceremony marks the first time time two men have wed at West Point.

      Both these t-shirts should say “I’m his”. I can only assume the one that says “he’s mine” is being worn by the top – so unfair!!!
