We’ve seen the good riddance of DADT, now it’s time to kick DOMA to the curb as well….past the time! A federal lawsuit has been filed as the beginning steps to overturning this horrible act. Our gay service members may be able to serve openly now, but they and thier families are still not equal by any means. See examples below.
“Benefits impacted by DOMA include military family housing, access to legal services, spousal relocation support, medical and dental benefits, military ID cards, visitation rights in military hospitals, survivor benefits and the right to be buried together in military cemetaries. The plantiffs in the case are seeking the same recognition, family support and benefits for their same-sex spouses that the military already provides to opposite-sex spouses of both current and former service members.”
