Military personnel allowed to march in uniform in gay pride parade

SAN DIEGO -- It's a parade that's making U.S. history.

The Department of Defense announced on Thursday that service members will be allowed to march in uniform in a gay pride parade.

This one-time exception has been made for this weekend's San Diego Gay Pride Parade.

At the parade in 2011, nearly 200 active duty service members and veterans marched in the parade, but only with flags and banners.
