USFK same-sex couples await theater-specific benefits

Capt. Dawn Tanner, 51st Medical Operations Squadron Family Advocacy element leader, and Dana McCown, retired lieutenant colonel, share their first glimpse of each other before their wedding ceremony in Omaha, Neb., May 3, 2013. Recent legislation has given service members and dependents in same-sex marriages access to the same benefits and assignment opportunities as heterosexual couples, but those assigned to United States Forces Korea and governed under the Status of Forces Agreement continue to wait for theater-specific entitlements.
