USA: Army Will Still Allow Spouses’ Clubs to Bar Gay/Lesbian Couples

Written by scott on January 18th, 2013

US Army LogoLast week, the Marines made it clear that its spouses’ clubs could not discriminate against same-sex couples. Wednesday, the Army said: not so fast.

As things stand now, the Army, backed by the Pentagon, is saying it will not bar recognition of spouses’ clubs that prohibit same-sex couples from membership.

This all began awhile back at Fort Bragg, N.C., after the Association of Bragg Officers’ Spouses denied Ashley Broadway membership, even though she is married to Army Lieutenant Colonel Heather Mack. Broadway says she is “extremely disappointed” by the decision.

    As a taxpayer I resent having some bigoted service members or their wives dictating how our tax dollars are spent on federal property.
