While the below seems to only apply to the Marines and not any of the other branches of service, it still shows a step toward progress is being made:
Marine Corps leaders have directed their legal teams to alert spouses clubs at all Marine bases to begin allowing same-sex spouses as members if those social groups want to continue operating on Marine installations, Marine officials confirmed to NBC News Wednesday evening.
In an all-hands memo to legal offices across the branch, the Marine commandant’s Staff Judge Advocate warned against discrimination based on sexual orientation, and he specifically mentioned a controversial decision made last month by the officers’ spouses club at the Army’s Fort Bragg to deny access to the same-sex spouse of a female Army lieutenant.
As a friend of mine said, leave it to the Marines to lead the charge!
