A woman who says she believes a private military spouses club excluded her because sheâ€™s gay says sheâ€™d still join the group if it reverses its decision.
â€śI would go tomorrow,â€ť Ashley Broadway, the wife of U.S. Army Lt. Col. Heather Mack, told CNN's Brooke Baldwin on â€śCNN Newsroomâ€ť Tuesday afternoon. â€śWherever we were stationed, I was a volunteer of some sort. Between my educational background, my volunteerism, my energy, my enthusiasm to help all military families, I would absolutely be elated to. If anything, I would like to be a part of the group so that they can see that my family is no different than their families.â€ť
Broadway applied to the Association of Bragg Officers' Spouses after she and Mack – who married in Washington, D.C. – moved to Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Broadway says the club told her she couldnâ€™t join because she doesnâ€™t have military identification.
