Gays Can Get Their Identification Card September 3rd
The Pentagon says same-sex spouses of service members can line up for official identification cards beginning Sept. 3. Navy Lt. Cmdr. Nate Christensen says service members will have to show a valid marriage certificate from a state or country that recognizes same-sex marriages. TRICARE also opens to same-sex spouses that day. Christensen says other benefits, including allowances for basic housing and family separation, are retroactive from the date of the Supreme Court's decision on the Defense of Marriage Act, June 26.
