Gay members of the Defence Forces can now apply to get married on military bases, the Sunday Independent has learned.

Every business day, there is an average of twenty-seven to thirty funerals at Arlington. For a full military honors procession, as many as seventy servicemen and women are involved. Each memorial service receives the same level of dignity and respect, and the next of kin is presented with a folded American flag. Although it is a time of anguish for family and friends, the chaplains that perform the service are some of the best in the world.
