Eequality still eludes our gay heroes in uniform. Thanks to DOMA legally married same-sex military spouses are denied health insurance, commissary, housing allowance and other base privileges as compared to their opposite-sex married counterparts. For those interested - http://OUTmilitary.com has been providing a supportive environment for friending, sharing and networking between Gay active military, vets and supporters since December, 2010.
OutMilitary.com, the social network for LGBT service members and their
supporters, is proud to support U.S. President Barack Obama’s decision
to certify the repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell”.
This was, hands down, the right thing for the president to do. The
estimated 65,000 active-duty and reserve troops that bravely serve our
nation no longer have to do so in silence this September. The end of
DADT will bring equality to the ranks; an all volunteer force comprised
of Americans from every conceivable background – including lesbian women
and gay men. OutMilitary.com members are happy about Obama’s decision
to finally put an end to a discriminatory chapter in American military
http://OutMilitary.com provides a supportive environment for “friending,”
sharing and networking between active duty military, veterans and
supporters – around the world.
