Marriage Equality: Veterans Face a Different Battle

During the month of April, SAGE will be featuring stories relating to the importance of marriage equality for LGBT older adults every Friday.  These stories are also part of our SAGE Story series. Do you have a story you would like to share? Tell us today!

Today, we feature two videos with different stories. Gary and Ose talk about their relationship, marriage and the issues surrounding Ose being a U.S. veteran. Denny Meyer, a previous contributor to the SAGE Blog, tells us about his issues being a vet and falling in love with his partner—who he met in the Philippines. What these stories have in common is the lack of benefits for veterans' partners—whether legally married or not.
