This is an important case to watch because it affects other married Veterans who receive disability from the VA......being a Disabled Veteran myself, the VA has denied my wife benefits based on the same reasoning!!!

President Obama ISN'T telling the Veteran's Affair Department to do that......the Department is following what they believe is the meaning under DOMA!!!

I agree with Sheeple.......you're simply an idiot who hates the President.......sorry, but the Department of Veteran's Affair does not need to follow the President orders.......they like any other part of the Military, can and do follow their own policies and until DOMA is gone......they can continue to deny benefits to the spouses of Gay and Lesbian Service Members.....even those who are no longer on active duty!!!

Why? I'm already legally married and seeing as I have already served my Country......why should my spouse be allowed to receive the same benefits as any other legal spouse does? or is that to hard for you to understand?

What law intends that marrying someone of the opposite-sex is deserving of "SPECIAL" rights?

What part of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution do you not understand ? "EQUAL protection of the laws" MEANS "EQUAL protection of the laws".

And please explain, in detail, how a gay or lesbian couple, getting married in the wild rolling cornfields of Iowa, affects your life in any way whatsoever.

Give at least 14 specific examples of how their marriage negatively affects your life.

It is important that we are ALL treated with equality. Neither my husband nor me are "disabled vets" but our marriage isn't recognized by VA either. The personnel do refer to us as married however.

There is a difference between being referred to as "MARRIED" and recognizing the marriage like the VA does with opposite-sex couples!!!

Yes, these cases should continue. Just because some other case is pending in another court is no reason to deny this couple their 1st amendment right to redress under the constitution.
