Trade in the rainbow flag for desert camoflauge and the Stars and Stripes: military recruiters are coming to Pride.

Now that gay people can openly serve in the United States military, recruiters are going to be out and about at San Francisco's Pride celebration this weekend, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

The military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy -- which allowed gays to serve as long as they did not make their sexuality known -- was repealed in 2011.

Recruiters who'll be in attance at the San Francisco event include gay soldiers like Mario Garcia, who spent 29 years in the National Guard, the newspaper reported.
