(DAILYMAIL) — The same-sex wife of a ranking Army officer stationed at Fort Bragg, North Carolina, claims that she has been repeatedly denied membership in a club for military spouses only because she is lesbian.

Ashley Broadway married her partner of 15 years, Lt Colonel Heather Mack, in November after the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell policy banning openly gay service members from the military.

The newlyweds have a two-year-old son, and Mack is now eight months pregnant with the couple’s second child.
