Thursday at a Chula Vista, CA Veterans' senior living facility. Mr. Banvard, a World War II vet, and Mr. Nadeau, a Vietnam vet, have been together for 20 years, and were married at the facility despite the opposition of some residents. In response to the opposition, Mr. Nadeau said, "Oh, that's their problem not mine, but you know what this will do, open the door for other people."
Last week, The Justice Department announced
that post-Windsor, they will stop enforcing a federal law that prohibits the Veterans Affairs Department from providing benefits to same-sex married couples.
