Two army captains exchanged vows at West Point in what is believed to be the first active-duty, same-sex marriage at the esteemed United States Military Academy.

Daniel Hall, 30, and Vincent Franchino, 26, are both Apache helicopter pilots and were married at the New York school's Cadet Chapel on Saturday, January 13, the New York Times reports.

The captains, who are now stationed together at Fort Bliss in Texas, were married in front of 150 family members and friends, 34 of whom were military officers.The couple sported their blue army uniforms and received a saber-arch salute as they left the chapel. Their reception was held at Skylands Manor in New Jersey.

Franchino and Hall met in August 2009, back when the former was a freshman (or 'plebe' in the school's parlance) and the latter was a senior (or 'firstie').

As part of a school tradition in which the plebes seek to hold up departing seniors, Franchino hid under Hall's bed and popped out to scare him.

'Dan was so startled, he jumped over his desk,' Franchino told the New York Times. 

Later in 2010, they chose each other for a mentorship program - Franchino as mentee and Hall as mentor. It was at this point that their feelings for each other developed.But because of the Bill Clinton-effected 1993 policy of 'don't ask, don't tell,' which barred homosexual servicemen and servicewomen from being 'out' in the military, they could not show their feelings. 

But when 'don't ask, don't tell' was repealed under Barack Obama in 2011, they came out in public with their relationship.

The couple, which will now go by the last name Franchino-Hall, enjoyed their first dance as married men to 'La Vie En Rose' by Edith Piaf. (for the complete content :http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5294601/Apache-helicopter-pilots-exchange-vows-West-Point.html

Wrong sis :triggered: please read again

I am actually happy for them :ladyhaha:

I’m only sad because my life is an epic of Les Miserables proportions, but it has zilch to do with the happy couple :cryga:

Plenty of other reasons why I’m borderline depressed :queenga:
