Harry Reid Returns West Point Ring to Lt. Dan Choi

As a reminder of his promise, Reid received the West Point graduation ring of Army 1st Lt. Dan Choi, who had been recently discharged from the military for being gay and become the public face of the campaign for repeal.

"He earned his ring," Reid said. "I'm going to give it back to him."

Wednesday, three days after keeping his promise on the repeal, Reid returned the ring to Choi in his office on Capitol Hill.

"Five months after I promised to repeal #DADT, I'm so happy to give back this West Point ring to @ltdanchoi," Reid tweeted.
