DoD Announces Same-Sex Spouse Benefits
John J. Baum IV, Lt Col, USAF
The Department of Defense remains committed to ensuring that all men and women who serve in the U.S. military, and their families, are treated fairly and equally as the law directs. Entitlements such as TRICARE enrollment (medical coverage), basic allowance for housing (BAH) and family separation allowance are enjoyed by all military families, regardless of gender.
Thank you all for allowing us to share the DoD policy updates during LGBT Pride Month. We are committed to shattering the paradigm of sexual orientation being a barrier to military service.
Commander, Det 752
