This 2012 photo provided by the North Carolina National Guard shows Army Sgt. Donna R. Johnson of Raeford, N.C. When Johnson was killed in Afghanistan in 2012, North Carolina National Guardswoman Tracy Dice Johnson heard about it from her sister-in-law. Although Donna Johnson had listed Dice as her next-of-kin, Army casualty officers informed Johnson’s mother of her death first because of a federal law that prohibits the U.S. government from recognizing same-sex unions.
