Posted on 05/30/2012 5:45:25 PM PDT by tobyhill
At a time when breastfeeding in public is already controversial, pictures of two military moms doing so while wearing their uniforms is sparking outrage.
The photo is part of a local breastfeeding awareness campaign by Mom2Mom of Fairchild Air Force Base, a support group launched in January by Crystal Scott, a military spouse and mother of three. Among the intimate close-ups of smiling young mothers cuddling their adorable babies, the images of the two airmen stand out.

Yes, it’s so “honorable” to engage in activities that can cause pregnancy knowing you can just ask for a discharge if you feel like it later.
The military itself seems keen on glorifying homo homecoming kisses by sending over their own photogs to record and publish these perverse public displays, so down the slippery slope it is. Always plenty of self-centered attention ho's who will rush in for their 15 min., no matter how offensive, inappropriate, or antisocial their behavior is.
The common thread with these "uniform violations" is the sick need to besmirch, defile, and profane the whole concept of wearing a United States military uniform with honor, dignity, and respect. Gee what kind of people would be interested in promoting and coordinating such abominations?
Maybe we should just be thankful there haven’t as yet been any photos of homosexual troops doing each other in the bus station restroom or at a highway rest stop.
No doubt, however, THAT must be listed under, “Our American Future.”
Will have to agree to disagree. I have served in a behind the lines/scenes role, freeing up men to be frontline warriors. Nor do I watch Oprah. Not a butch lesbian either.
Boy, do I have some swampland to sell you if you don’t think that is staged.
Translation: if she does not ask for the discharge she is a pathetic mother, and if she does ask for the discharge she is a pathetic soldier. This so because women are pathetic soldiers and the military is no place for social experiments.
They aren’t “military” moms. They are moms stealing a salary pretending to be soldiers.
PEOPLE NEVER HAD TO BREASTFEED BEFORE THIS ... BEFORE THIS ... uh, nevermind.
Scott suggests that the issue might have less to do with the uniform and more to do with our own internal conflicts. "I think a lot of people think that you can't be a mom and be a soldier," she says.
Scott doesn't know the difference between a soldier and an airman.
Not honorable at all in my estimation - and now the big push to get the girls in fighting units. Madness Madness Madness all the way around.
Women serve well in auxiliary roles as long as we don’t pretend they are true soldiers. The problem is pretending (as the gov’t does) that it’s all the same thing - because it isn’t.
I first served in uniform from 1985-1995 in a combat arms branch. I resigned my commission and was not in the reserves. I volunteered for active duty after 9/11 and served for 4 more years as a JAG in and deployed to Afghanistan with an air cav unit.
My point is that I have seen the integration of women nonsense from the early stages and more recently and have seen it from various perspectives (combat arms leader and in an auxiliary role) and as a JAG I had a front row seat to see what caused problems for morale and discipline.
Women in the military is a failed and very expensive experiment.
Now, we've had two generations of chickenhawks who render the military beyond criticism. No matter how stupid or PC. Soldiers breastfeeding? Must be OK. “Everyone in a uniform is a hero!”
I feel a little less safe after seeing that picture. I wonder what George Patton would have to say about breastfeeding soldiers?
The article says the picture was not posed, just going by what they said.
The photo makes undeniably clear how wrong it is to pretend women are soldiers or warriors of any kind.
Of course seeing a girl “soldier” in a prom dress at a military ball demonstrates the same thing, but we’ve all been desensitized to that.
and the media never lies.
The Vietnam War ended the transfer of American values from one generation to the next.
