Reid Returns West Point Ring to Choi

Reid Returns West Point Ring to Choi


Following through on a promise to shepherd the repeal of "don't ask, don't tell," Senate majority leader Harry Reid returned a ring belonging to Lt. Dan Choi, which the discharged officer gave to Reid five months ago with the request to have it back when the law was repealed.

Reid posted a photo of the two with Choi's West Point class ring and said he was "so happy" to return the ring to Choi.

Choi responded on Twitter, "The next time I get a ring from a man, I expect it to be for full, equal, American marriage."

The meeting in Reid's office Wednesday was a high point between the two. In n a moment of frustration over the Senate's stalling on "don't ask, don't tell" in October, Choi called Reid a slur and a "DADT Fail."

He later apologized.
