“No Thanks”: Excluded Lesbian Army Wife To Spouses Club “Guest Membership” Offer


My wife wears the same uniform as the spouses of [the club] and she’s just as prepared to give her life for our country. I wake up each and every day to the reality that I’m not equal, that my 15 years of love and faithfulness to my wife and country does not mean I’ll receive support as a military spouse.”

Ashley Broadway, wife of Lt. Col. Heather Mack, responding to the Association of Bragg Officers’ Spouses offer of a “guest membership”, which she says treats her as less than equal, via the Los Angeles Times.
