Ambassadors of Justice
Alicia Butler and Judith Chedville
Cathedral of Hope recognized Alicia Butler and Judith Chedville with the Ambassadors of Justice award on Sunday, December 1st, in recognition of their standing up for the rights of same-gender married couples in the Armed Services.
On the morning of Sept. 3, the first day the Pentagon said they could, Alicia Butler and her wife, Judith Chedville, who is a Texas Army National Guard officer, went to Austin’s Camp Mabry so Ms. Butler could get a military spouse id card and register for the same federal marriage benefits provided to wives and husbands of heterosexual service members. This did not happen.
The reason? Texas was one of 5 states refusing to comply with the order that gay spouses of National Guard members be given the same federal marriage benefits as heterosexual spouses. This order applies to all branches of the military.
However, prior to the deadline set by the Department of Defense, the Texas National Guard began providing benefits in accordance with Federal Law.
