To Members of Congress:

The so-called Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) forces the military to treat married gay and lesbian service members and veterans and their families differently than it treats all other married service members and their families. Spouses are denied access to health insurance, military bases, housing, and survivor benefits. If a lesbian or gay service member is killed, wounded, or missing in action, the spouse is not notified or even provided counseling and support. DOMA burdens service members, harms their families, and undermines military morale and fair play.

Please end this discriminatory and unequal treatment of our service members and veterans by repealing DOMA.
