As gay pride celebrations kick off this weekend, the issue of gays in the military is bubbling up in California. The state Senate's Veterans Affairs committee this week passed a resolution calling for the end of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." The policy went into effect in 1994, as a response to concerns that having gays and lesbians serve openly in the armed forces would harm unit cohesion and discipline. Almost 13,000 people have been discharged from the military under the policy. But what's not so well known is the toll it's taking on the partners of gay service members. Reporter: Scott Shafer
