Florida National Guard may file for same sex benefits
Same sex spouses in the Florida National Guard can now enroll for military benefits.
Florida initially refused to comply with the new Department of Defense rules for same-sex spouses.
Last week Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel blasted the state for that decision.
So the Florida National Guard moved the functions from state buildings to federal buildings and is now in compliance.
Enrollment is underway right now.
