Florida National Guard to pay same sex benefits

FLORIDA  --  The Florida National Guard will now provide benefits to same-sex couples who are legally married.

The Florida National Guard initially refused to comply with the new Department of Defense rules for same-sex spouses.
Last week Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel blasted the Florida Guard for that decision.
Today the Guard issued a short announcement saying they're now in "Full Compliance" and enrollment can begin tomorrow.
