The Texas National Guard has moved a step further in its defiance of a Pentagon policy toward gay service members by refusing to process military housing allowances for same-sex couples, according to a gay-rights group.

The  Texas Military Force, which includes the state’s guard forces,  acknowledged on Monday that it was requiring all same-sex couples wanting to apply for a housing allowance at a “with dependent” rate must do so at a federal installation.

The American Military Partner Association, which represents gay military spouses, said the Texas National Guard has already turned away at least one couple that applied for the benefit at a state facility.
