In a separate action from the air strikes against the Islamic State group, the U.S. bombed a cell of al Qaida militants in northwestern Syria after concluding they were close to attacking the U.S. or Europe, Pentagon officials say. Mayville, the Pentagon’s operations chief, said that the Khorasan Group was nearing “the execution phase of an attack either in Europe or the homeland." (AP Photo/Cliff Owen)

In this Aug. 20, 2014, photo, a photo of deployed Marine corporal Nivia Huskey rests next to a gift for the upcoming birth of her and same-sex marriage partner Jessica Huskey's baby in Jacksonville, N.C.

But about two-thirds of active-duty personnel in the U.S. are based in states that don't recognize gay marriages, leaving thousands of military families missing out on legal rights they would enjoy if Uncle Sam had stationed them elsewhere.
