Last month, Johnny Wandasan, a Resource Officer in the U.S. Army, joined with his partner Kenton in a civil union ceremony at the Hickam Air Force Base on July 6, 2012. It was the first same-sex civil union ceremony at the Hickam Officer’s Club.
A masterful new video from Crane Media 2takes us through the couple’s wedding day, interjecting the wedding ceremony with scenes of Kenton and Johnny writing out invitations, sharing a cocktail, and getting dressed for the big day in front of their family members and friends.
The American Military Partner Association profiled the couple in July3. The piece reads:
The July 6th date holds a special meaning to Kenton and Johnny, as does the venue; Johnny received his commissioning from the 298th Regimental Training Institute’s Officer Candidate School program at the Hickam Officer’s Club, back in August 2000.
The repeal of DADT aided tremendously in transitioning from a life of secrecy to a life of openness and acceptance in the military.
