Even After DADT The Right Still Fights Against Gay People In the Military
They are using the defense bills to further their agenda (nothing new to either side), by way of making it harder for chaplains to provide support, limiting benefits to couples, and even worse- opening the gates to allowing open discrimination.

Bastards...

There's no excuse for the unequal treatment of married couples.

Although I have to say... if the Chaplain had to be ... forced... to officiate at my marriage I'd be pretty bummed... no pun intended Tongue

I mean... what, is he gonna be asking the couple the questions through clenched teeth?

I can't say I'd want a chaplain to officiate my ceremony if he or she didn't want to. But according to the article, military chaplains are supposed to be more pluralist in order to serve and assist all personnel.

I don't know what the options are for marriage while you're enlisted. Do you have to use the chaplain services?

No. It's just available to those who wish.
