A nice gesture, but since the GOPasaur House will never pass it and the SCOTUS is going to overturn DOMA in June, it will be a moot issue.

Funny how the Democrats did NOT introduce a bill like this when they held the MAJORITY in the House, the MAJORITY in the Senate, and a friend in the White House.

Gee, I wonder why......

Good points. And let's also remember Panetta's recent decision to begin treating the families of gay and lesbian service members more equally.

It just a start I know but it is a start after all. Hopefully if Hagel is confirmed he'll follow up with even more revisions that will bring equal treatment to gays and lesbians serving our military.

Hagel should NEVER be confirmed. And why does The Obamaniac REFUSE to give Congress all the infor they have requested on the attacks on our embasy in Benghazi where a GAY AMERICAN was killed ???

Shouldn't you guys be upset about this ?

Oh no. Wait. I'm sorry. I forgot. You are all Obamaniac supporters and he can do NO WRONG, even when he MURDERS Americans overseas.

There is are two reasons I support the nomination. My brother and the fact Hagel would be the first Sec of Defense who started as an enlisted man.

President Obama's opinion of him means little to me other than his qualifications for the post.

You'd rather have had a constitutional ban instead?

Yep, you're a moron.

The co-location of duty assignments and ID cards are significant benefits same-sex couples will now have. I know I would have enjoyed being stationed with my husband all those years instead of being on opposite sides of the planet.
