Ashley Broadway is just like any other Army wife: She's been standing by the U.S. military and her beloved soldier, an Army lieutenant colonel, for 15 years. She's waited at home with their son Carson while her spouse was deployed to the Middle East. She's had to relocate bases, even moving to South Korea at one point.
But when the couple landed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, and Broadway wanted to join the Association of Bragg Officers' Spouses, she was refused membership. The private military club claims she couldn't join without a military ID card, but Broadway believes it has to do with something else ... She's gay.
Yup, turns out we are so not as progressive as we may like to think ...
