Gay couple military

The policy, announced with great fanfare at the Pentagon in mid-August, was meant to give same-sex couples up to 10 days special leave to get married in the 13 states that allow it — and thus equal access to low-cost healthcare, base shopping and other benefits available to married couples in the military. But implementation of the policy has caused widespread confusion. Only the Marines have issued final guidelines to their ranks on the new leave. The Army and Navy put out interim directives and are still working on final versions, while the Air Force has yet to even issue any instructions on granting the time off.

Six Men Tell Their Stories of Sexual Assault in the Military

First Active-Duty Gay Couple Married At West Point

SAN DIEGO — Gay service members from Army soldiers to Air Force officers are planning to celebrate the official end of the military's year policy that forced them to hide their sexual orientation with another official act — marriage. A year-old Air Force officer from Ohio said he can't wait to wed his partner of two years and slip on a ring that he won't have to take off or lie about when he goes to work each day once "don't ask, don't tell" is repealed. He plans to wed his boyfriend, a federal employee, in Washington D. He asked not to be identified, following the advice of the Servicemembers Legal Defense Network, a national organization representing gay troops, including the Air Force officer, that has cautioned those on active duty from coming out until the ban is off the books. I think that taints what it's supposed to be about — which is us, our families, and our government. But in the eyes of the military the marriage will not be recognized and the couple will still be denied most of the benefits the Defense Department gives to heterosexual couples to ease the costs of medical care, travel, housing and other living expenses. The Pentagon says the federal Defense of Marriage Act — which defines marriage for federal program purposes as a legal union between a man and woman — prohibits the Defense Department from extending those benefits to gay couples, even if they are married legally in certain states.

First Active-Duty Gay Couple Married At West Point

Mark Nelson remembers when he had to stock shelves on a military base in Germany just to stay in the same country as the man who would become his husband. Nelson, a labor and employment attorney, took a job in he was vastly overqualified for, working at a post exchange on the same Heidelberg base where his then-boyfriend, an army officer, was stationed. Back then, the US military did not recognize out gay and lesbian service — and it certainly did not recognize gay marriage. That subjected LGBT military couples to the mercies of complex bureaucracies — and, in Nelson's case, visa, customs and immigration authorities — that never imperiled straight couples.
Armed forces. These are the voices explaining what it has been like to be a gay man 1 in the American military over the previous seventy or so years, from World War II veterans in their late eighties to young servicemen on active duty. How we got here: In , many people thought that the discrimination was nearly over. This was presented as a kind of victory for the forces of progress—you were no longer excluded from serving—but it could instead be seen as solidifying discrimination. Gay people were only acceptable, in effect, to the degree to which they could successfully masquerade as nongay.
