Hours after same-sex Army wife Ashley Broadway was named Fort Bragg's 2013 spouse of the year, the on-base spouses club that has for two months rebuffed Broadway's bid to join fully reversed course and invited her "to become a full member," according to emails sent to NBC News and Broadway.
The decision comes one week after the Association of Bragg Officers' Spouses (ABOS) extended Broadway who is married to Army Lt. Col. Heather Mack a "special guest membership," an invitation she declined and called "extremely demeaning." Advertise | AdChoices
"After further reviewing the (club's) constitution, by-laws and internal procedures, the ABOS Board felt that in order to immediately support all military Officer spouses who are eligible for ABOS membership a more inclusive definition of spouse was needed. Therefore, any Spouse of an active duty commissioned or warrant Officer with a valid marriage certificate from any state or district in the United States is eligible for ABOS membership," the club's board said in a statement.
"ABOS does not discriminate based on race, gender, religion, national origin, age, disability, creed, or sexual orientation. ABOS would like to publicly invite Ms. Broadway to apply for full membership to ABOS. It is and always has been our mission to support all military families."

Granted access to the club — denied access to heaven.
Applies to the board members worshiping at the altar of political correctness as well.
Military wives can honestly be a politically correct nusiance. They are more clawing than their husbands and fantasize that they wear the rank.
PS,, that fat azz woman lesbo is actually an officer? Of what, the snack bar? We are so screwed if we ever fight a war of necessity instead of these wars of convenience.
Shun her. Simple.
I can’t wait for the first male “spouse” to join.
I’ll get the popcorn.
I've never seen one on the 3rd day of an ORI at 03:45 right before a simulated gas mass casuality drill.
Heck, you can't get 'em to remember their call sign on the local net.
Before my cuz’ got his papers to South korea, he was at Bragg for a brief moment. Told me there were more off-base military groups than he can count than there were on the base.
I'm pissed that the state allows same-sex adoption or whatever mechanism puts homos in charge of rearing children.
Pissed in the sense that I hold it is wrong, not in the sense that I'll act out in any way other than expressing my point of view.
Kids lose in all easy-divorce regimes. The adults aren't "gifted" with good judgment and the maturity to think beyond today's wishes.

Well they can’t really turn down the (female) LTCOL’s “WIFE” membership in the O Club Wives Club if she had been voted SPOUSE OF THE YEAR now can you?
I would think (from the ‘dealings’ I had with O wives many a year ago) that this would solidify the ‘other women’ from accepting this freak into their ranks.
Wonder how many Officers were ‘threatened’ if the (female) LTCOL’s “WIFE” weren’t accepted by their wives...
Yes CAPT, I realize your wife is her own woman etc BUT would a tour in ‘Indian Country’ give her an opportunity to see the light?
Mmmm, Ritz. That’s a good snack cracker.
Especially with a piece of cheese on top!
