The same day that the SEAL who claims to have killed Osama bin Laden is griping about being short-changed by the U.S. government at the end of his 16-year Navy career, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta signs a memo titled “Extending Benefits to Same-Sex Domestic Partners of Military Members.”

Not sure which is more discombobulating…or which Battleland would have foreseen as more likely a decade ago.


Is there no way that benefits can be prorated??? It seems to me, that if a person goes into the military, they should have some benefit(s) for serving, especially if there is more wear and teat on their bodies than if they were in the civilian work force.
