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.

One thing the “Greatest Generation” had on us is that they'd say out loud what most of us ignore or fear to contemplate: The military is the biggest government bureaucracy of all. Of course, many of them saw friends die due to idiot brass and systematic inertia. Can you think of any pop culture that came out of WWII that respected “The Brass”?

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!”

What has happened to this country?

The Vietnam War ended the transfer of American values from one generation to the next.

My, how times have changed.

In 1954 while I was 15 and my sister 13, having been ‘farmed out’ to my Grandfather and Aunt/Uncle my mother, an RN for about 17 years tried to join the Air Force Nurse Corps and she was turned town because of me and my sister.

Also, she was a long time customer of All State Auto Ins and when she came up for renewal in 1957, they turned her down because I was 17 - and in the Navy, not living at home.
Said they didn’t insure folks with teen agers of driving age.

Is it wrong to assume this will be used by the Obama campaign is some way to further the “conservative War on Women” lie?

Who is this ‘controversial’ to???

It is the most natural thing in the world- who looks at a breast-feeding mother and things they are seeing something wrong?
