LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Being gay and out may be easier now than before. But it's still tough for those serving in the military.

The repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell," and the overturning of part of the Defense of Marriage act, allowed more people to openly serve.

That brought the possibility of marriage benefits to soldiers who were previously denied.

A group at Fort Campbell, Ky., recently talked about life after the repeal.

Each soldier said they were concerned about their sexuality surfacing, and sometimes walked away from conversations that were uncomfortable.
