Hello,
I'm in need of help . My husband and I are married in Germany . I'm an American and he is German . We got married in Germany and now being that I'm a
Department of defense commissary agency  employee ( i work for the usa army europe ) It has come time for me return to the USA . I can not get a green card for him due to DOMA . It all started march 18, 2011 my husband and I got married then 8 day later I was told by my grocery manager that I wouldn't be given an over seas tour extension, no reason was given and after talking to the store deputy ( who I told about my problem in detail) he said that he was told that a reason doesn't need to be given to me. I have made 2 EEO complaints dealing with discrimination and harassment. Because Deca ( commissary ) refused to. Help me in my problem . I was told that it was my fault for marrying a local national ( my husband is German) I should have thought about the consiquences before hand. Since then I have been fired while on sick leave . While fighting to keep my family together and to get my job back I still suffer from my work related sickness . I wait for help from any legal group willing to help us . My email is centilyen@yahoo.com
