The Georgia National Guard this afternoon indicated it intends to ignore a directive from Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel and will continue to send same-sex spouses of National Guard personnel elsewhere for benefits guaranteed by the Pentagon.
Here's the statement received late Friday from Joseph Quimby, deputy director of public affairs for the state Department of Defense:
The State of Georgia does not recognize same sex marriages and is not authorizing the Georgia National Guard to process the applications for same-sex married benefits at state facilities. Any personnel seeking to apply for same-sex married benefits will be referred to federal facilities.
The statement was in response to this piece by the Associated Press:
Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel on Thursday sharply criticized U.S. states that are defying the Pentagon by refusing to allow National Guard facilities to issue ID cards that enable same-sex spouses of military members to claim benefits.
"This is wrong," Hagel said in a speech in New York....

Good for Georgia!
How to secede in monkey business without really trying
My pee-wee football team won its league,undefeated We were noncom and officers’ sons at Fort Benning and thought we were pretty hot stuff.
So we played the best equivalent team from Columbus. They beat us like rented logsplitters .....
Eeb-uh-deeb-uh-deeb ... uh what’s upChuck?
People think that Obamacare, gun laws, ever-increasing taxes, and abortion are the most serious issues facing us today. But it is the homosexual agenda that is the spearhead of ALL of these other oppressions.
I live in N.J. and somehow I don’t think we will follow Georgias lead.
But we are #1 in mass governor weight.
Hey baggie eyes, “Bite Me”.
Good for them. The president is NOT their commander in chief nor is Hagel in their chain of command. The governor of Georgia is their commander in chief unless their units are activated, and then Obummer is their CIC only during that period.
Uh, okay. But what does that have to do with the story?
The only way to defeat Obama is to ignore him. Ignore everything he tells us to do. They can’t kill or imprison all of us.
Good. I’m noticing that some of the dictatorship is beginning to crack at the state level.
But it remains to be seen what Herr Obama will do about it. Since he even turned the generally harmless parkies into storm troopers during the shutdown, I think his retaliation is going to be swift. I hope they hang in there.
This is the time for all good Americans in uniform to refuse illegal orders from a corrupt regime led by incompetent and possibly treasonous leadership .
This needs to begin at the top , at command level , as it appears to here , and not fall upon courageous Cols. , Majors
or NCO only
Apparently Chuck Hagel is a puppet of the regime, unless he is among those who believe that men and women are interchangeable.
Hurray for the Georgia National Guard. They are among those of us who KNOW that men and women are different!
“They cant kill or imprison all of us.”
Tell that to the 6 million Jews and millions of Gypsies, genetically or physically deficient children, who were almost wiped out at the whim of a clubfoot madman.
The hardcore left in this country is chock full of mutant sadists and no one anywhere is safe anymore.
Arm yourself, be wary, be alert, and do not hesitate to fight back.
No,he's an enthusiastic member of TeamObama.He runs DoD just as Arlen Sphincter or Jim Jeffords would have done.
So Fort Sumter is now in Georgia?
My thought exactly!
