A woman who says she believes a private military spouses club excluded her because she‚Äôs gay says she‚Äôd still join the group if it reverses its decision.
‚ÄúI would go tomorrow,‚ÄĚ Ashley Broadway, the wife of U.S. Army Lt. Col. Heather Mack, told CNN's Brooke Baldwin on ‚ÄúCNN Newsroom‚ÄĚ Tuesday afternoon. ‚ÄúWherever 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.‚ÄĚ
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 couldn‚Äôt join because she doesn‚Äôt have military identification.
