Guard to let same-sex couples sign for benefits
SAN ANTONIO (AP) -- The Texas National Guard will immediately begin letting same-sex couples register for benefits.
The San Antonio Express-News reports the Defense Department has approved a new procedure for enrolling National Guard members and their dependents for benefits. The decision came late Tuesday.
The Texas National Guard commander had ordered the Texas Military Forces, the umbrella command of all Texas National Guard units, not to process any applications from same-sex couples. Maj. Gen. John Nichols had said the Guard was a state agency bound by Texas law, which doesn't recognize same-sex marriage.
That had placed five National Guard facilities in Texas off-limits for same-sex couples seeking benefits.
