Secretary of Defense to Indiana: Stop Discriminating

Share this post

US Secretary of State Chuck Hagel on Thursday issued a stern warning to several states, including Indiana, to stop denying same-sex couples and their families benefits, which he says is in violation of federal law. Today, an Indiana National Guard spokesperson says a decision was never made to not process benefits, rather the decision was delayed in order to understand the impact of these new benefits. Last month the Department of Defense began providing benefits to same-sex spouses of military members and eligible civilian employees following the US Supreme Court's June 26th ruling that Section Three of the Defense of Marriage Act is unconstitutional.
