Chuck Hagel Includes Gay Sailor's Proposal In Holiday Message

Defense Secretary's Holiday Message Features A Gay First

Well, this is a lovely statement of solidarity for the holidays.

U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and his wife Lilibet released a holiday message to men and women of the Defense Department last week that included an image of MM2 2nd Class Jerrel Revels' proposal to his boyfriend Dylan Kirchner.

This viral gay marriage proposal happened in 2013, just two short years after the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

A gay military couple has reportedly never before been included in the Defense Secretary's holiday message for the troops.
