Effective Sept. 9, 2015, U.S. Army Europe is authorized to issue Status of Forces Agreement credentials and command sponsorship authorizations to eligible same-sex spouses assigned to or on orders to Germany.


Military and civilian personnel in same-sex marriages are now authorized to receive the same overseas benefits, entitlements and allowances in Germany as those currently authorized to spouses of military and civilian personnel in opposite-sex marriages.


Examples of such benefits include family travel, command sponsorship, SOFA ID, government controlled quarters, off-post housing and other associated individual logistical support benefits as described in AER 600-700.


For more information, contact your servicing military or civilian personnel office.
