WILL OF CONGRESS, AND DOMA LAW BE DAMNED: first gay union on U.S. military base

When Tech. Sgt. Erwynn Umali and civilian Will Behrens wanted to seal their commitment in a civil union in New Jersey, they chose a venue that nine months ago would have been unthinkable: a military base.

The grooms said their vows on June 23 before 150 guests at the chapel at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst - the first time a civil union or gay wedding has been held in such a facility in the United States.
