In the wake Don't Ask Don't Tell's repeal, Navy chaplains have been given permission to perform wedding ceremonies for same-sex couples in states where same-sex marriage is legal. According to the Adovcate:
"An April 13 document from the Office of the Chief of Navy Chaplains was recovered recently, showing that inquiries were made into whether chaplains will be allowed to perform such ceremonies. After legal review "legal counsel has concluded that base use is sexual orientation-neutral. If the base is located in a state where same-sex marriage is legal, then base facilities may normally be used to celebrate the marriage."
