    Defense Sec. Chuck Hagel: Take Stronger Action NOW to protect LGBT service members!

    All military men and women serving our country deserve to receive the full benefits they have earned and are entitled to under the law. However 6 states -- including Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, West Virginia, and Texas -- think they are above the law of the land and are refusing to allow same-sex married couples in the National Guard to register for spousal benefits despite a federal mandate.

    Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel has ordered “immediate action” for these states to comply with the law, but so far they are not backing down. He's on our side, but now we need to make him finish the job.

    Sign on and tell Sec. Hagel: “Use all the legal tools at your disposal NOW against the National Guard in the states who refuse to grant spousal benefits to same-sex married partners. One more day of this blatant disrespect for the LGBT service members who protect our country every day is unacceptable.”
