Marines Tell Spouses Clubs: Admit Same-Sex Spouses - ABC News
NEW YORK – The Marine Corps has advised its legal staff that spouses clubs operating on its installations must admit same-sex spouses if they wish to remain on the bases.
It's a step that the other service branches have not yet announced as they grapple with how to accommodate same-sex couples following repeal of the don't ask, don't tell policy that barred gays and lesbians from serving openly.
Underscoring the challenges, the Marines' advisory -- obtained Wednesday by The Associated Press -- refers to an ongoing controversy at the Army's Fort Bragg in North Carolina where the officers' spouses club has denied admission to a same-sex spouse.
"We do not want a story like this developing in our backyard," the Marines' memo says.
