(NBC News) Hours after same-sex Army wife Ashley Broadway was named Fort Bragg’s 2013 “spouse of the year,” the on-base spouses club — that has for two months rebuffed Broadway’s bid to join — fully reversed course and invited her “to become a full member,” according to emails sent to NBC News and Broadway.

The decision comes one week after the Association of Bragg Officers’ Spouses (ABOS) extended Broadway — who is married to Army Lt. Col. Heather Mack — a “special guest membership,” an invitation she declined and called “extremely demeaning.”
