WASHINGTON -- U.S. officials say Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is poised to extend some benefits to the same-sex partners of military members.
The policy change would come about 16 months after the Pentagon repealed its ban on openly gay service.
Officials say Panetta has not made a final decision on which benefits will be included, but the Pentagon is likely to allow same-sex partners to have access to the on-base commissary and other military subsidized stores, as well as health and welfare programs.

Only 47 more months to go...
That’s just my optimism acting up. Pay it no mind.
“Only 47 more months to go...”
That we know of. Remember, to these dolts the Constitution is “living and breathing”. Who knows ?
That’s one of the Village People.
It’s hard to be optimistic these days.
I have random outbreaks of it. Then it just goes away as mysteriously as it began.
Not to sound overly dramatic, but this is another nail in the coffin for America.
And me three. All these people are sick and disgusting.
Are we pissed yet!?
It’s past time to see about one million Americans, or more filling the streets in protest of this Constitution Bushwhacking Commie administration.
This ain’t America anymore. NOT when they can just flip the wee birdie to everything that is America, and walk away unscathed.
This country should officially be placed on a suicide watch.
elections have consequences.
If all those people that stood in line for days for a lousy chicken sandwich actually voted, we might just be discussing tax cuts instead of the devolution of the US military.
We will soon see a mass migration of actual qualified officers and senior enlisted out of the service and an abandonment of the services by actual clergy who will be replaced by “faith counselors” loyal to Obama, their god.
Thank you for the ping.
It’s hard to face all that is happening, but we must keep up with the facts of the march toward tyranny.
Another stone in the pavement of the tax revolt movement that is surely on its way.
America is now ancient Rome and Greece dying from within by wussification of the military - females in combat gays lesbians transgender and bisexual supported by US taxpayers to fight.
Come now do we really believe wussies will fight? Thyere will more issues of the faggos wanting to have sex and more sex. Hell the chinese will only have to light a fire cracker and the american wuss soldier will run into his/her/it armored vehicle and hoist up the white flag of surrender.
Damn the greatest generation has practically died off for this trash to come into existence.
If all those people that stood in line for days for a lousy chicken sandwich actually voted, we might just be discussing tax cuts instead of the devolution of the US military.They did vote.
But so did all the people that stood in line for free cheese.
Simply declare yourself one of the butt lickers with a bud and you got benefits for any friend,,,,unless you must demonstrate by doing some homosexual act.
Exactly. How will they prove you are not a pervert.
At the (large, multinational) company I retired from, the only requirement to sign up a gay partner for benefit coverage was a signed affadavit from that person. Not a very high bar to get over.
Of course that brings a lot of complaints from unmarried heterosexual couples who then feel entitled to the same thing.
I AM SO DANGED GLAD I AM OUT OF THE MILITARY!! THANKFULLY the Good Lord had me retire before Bill the Commie Klinton came into office and I did not have to serve under that puke or the Fairy in the White House and all those homo loving officers now in the Pentagon.
