Fallin Directive To National Guard Causes Little Disruption
Nearly a month after a directive by Gov. Mary Fallin changed the way the Oklahoma National Guard handles marriage benefits, Guard officials say the change has caused little disruption.
Following the change, the Guard now accepts applications for marriage benefits and military ID cards for all spouses— including same-sex couples— at four federally owned facilities around the state or at any of the five federal military installations in the state.
Col. Max Moss told The Oklahoman that there has been no disruption "at all," and says all those seeking ID cards and benefit requests are being processed.
