"It's just been really open, a lot of acceptance. I haven't heard anyone say, 'I hate this. I can't serve in the military with this. It's a sense of 'OK, this is their lifestyle, but they're still the person I've spent 21 credit hours a semester next to or I've gone through this with. Honestly, for me, it was, 'Oh well, I kind of had a suspicion since I've known you for two years now, but you just move on"

-- 3rd Class Cadet Kevin Wise, a second-year management major, on the first openly gay graduates from the Air Force Academy - and how it was no different from any other graduation.
