A gay marine received a rainbow flag on his last day of service with the phrase "Served With Pride" stitched under the Marine Corps logo. Originally posted onReddit, the rainbow flag acted as a parting gift from the soldier's unit. The photo was posted with the following description:

"Today's my unofficial last day as a Marine. This is what my unit gave me to say goodbye."

A proud day for LGBT service members everywhere.

My response to this post in the other group as well:
Wait, the unit cohesiveness wasn't destroyed with the repeal of DADT?! His unit still liked him enough to give him a departing gift? Huh, guess many people underestimated the members of the USMC.
