US military extends many benefits to same-sex partners

Published: 02.11.13, 22:13 / Israel News

The Pentagon announced on Monday it would extend more of the benefits offered to spouses of heterosexual troops to those of gay personnel but acknowledged some key benefits, like housing, would still be off-limits, at least for now.

 

The step came 17 months after the Pentagon scrapped its "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" ban on openly serving homosexuals in the US military and will affect the day-to-day lives of their spouses in ways big and small - from allowing them to finally get military I.D. cards to granting hospital visitation rights.
