RENEE MONTAGNE, HOST:

Tomorrow at this year's parade, they'll make history. They're the first to be allowed to march in a gay parade wearing their uniforms, as the Pentagon announced yesterday. Though the exception applies only to this event, the parade's director called it a giant leap in the right direction. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright National Public Radio.
