Veterans in San Francisco are celebrating the end of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" by allowing a gay marching band to lead their parade on Friday, City Insider reports:
“It’s just the right thing to do,” said Wallace Levin, the parade coordinator. “Future generations of Americans will look back on this issue and wonder what all the fuss was about.”
The Nov. 11 parade, which occurs on the day and hour in 1918 when the armistice ending World War I was signed, honors the 26 million Americans who have served in uniform. It also recognizes the 70th anniversary of World War II and the 10th anniversary of the war in Afghanistan.
