Troops march in San Diego's gay pride parade

About 200 active-duty troops and veterans marched Saturday in San Diego's gay pride parade, The Associated Press reported, marking what is believed to be the first time a military contingent has participated in such an event in the U.S.

Many of the active-duty troops told AP they were moved to come out because it is time to end the military's ban on openly gay troops.

The gay pride march, covered by the AP, comes a day after a federal appeals court reinstated "don't ask, don't tell" but with a caveat that prevents the government from investigating or penalizing anyone who is openly gay.
