Look for the GOPasaurs to attempt to attach something to the military defense bill to prevent them from giving benefits to married gay servicemembers stationed in one of the remaining 37 hate states.

I faced frustrations working as a civilian in the Defense Dept (roughly 1/3 of defense is civilian). This kept me from taking advantage of some of the perks inherent in my career field, such as an overseas tour (which was generally a career-enhancing step). I would never have recommended a Defense career to another gay person because of this.
So I am very pleased that DoD is taking these steps. Too late for me (retired), but good for those still employed, or to be employed, there. Just think, being treated just like everyone else - what a concept!
