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.

I don’t mind when another woman breastfeeds but she should be discreet about it.
These women didn’t even attempt to be discreet, they posed for a picture.
It’s just a “15 minutes” thing. A crock of ... I’m not looking forward to the Homos in Uniform cover.
There is nothing wrong with breastfeeding, but making a public display out of it is just wrong.
There is nothing wrong with breastfeeding, in or out of uniform. The is nothing to see here, just babies eating.
According to the article this was a candid picture.
Discression is the better valor, which includes in regards to breastfeeding babies.
Now that is something you don't see everyday...
I have so much respect for those who serve. I’m also a nursing mother (counting down the days lol!). I don’t think moms should serve. There. I wrote it. It’s not PC and I don’t care.
Agree with you 100% - once you are pregnant, you go home & take care of your child. Such a dinosaur I am.
It’s downhill from here, particularly with militant queers in uniform. The feminized/homosexualized military will be all too recognizable in the very near future, the old military will not. But, that’s what liberalism does, i.e., destroys. Ah yes, Obama, the transformational president.
The TIME OUT generation.
Nothing wrong with breastfeeding but how about a little privacy?
This is an excellent illustration of how utterly wrong is the pretense that women are warriors.
Women are not warriors, no matter how many laws you pass or how much brain washing you do.
Warriors don’t suckle children.
And any male who wants women to be warriors is not a real man.
If you love a woman, you don’t want her to be a soldier of any kind except in an auxiliary role.
LOL. That’s funny.
There are lots of perfectly natural, acceptable things that you don’t do in public and in uniform.
This is one of them.
Excuse me: udderly wrong.
Privacy? The baby doesn’t care where they are.
Discretion is the key. I took a lot of pisses in uniform, but I sure didn’t invite a photographer to take my picture in action. I kissed my wife while in uniform, but not while in public view.
And I seem to recall something about wearing a uniform while trying to push a political agenda...what was that silly reg? No matter. I’m sure it has been gone for some time now.
