As part of his commitment to build the military "force of the future," Defense Secretary Ash Carter on Thursday announced a series of "family-friendly" initiatives to attract and retain "the best America has to offer."
"We are not Google. We are not Walmart. We're war fighters. But that doesn't mean we should not be challenging ourselves just like the private sector," Carter told reporters at the Pentagon. [...]
The Defense Secretary outlined the following initiatives: [...] Making military workplaces more accommodating to women when they return from maternity leave: The focus here is to make it easier for new mothers to continue breast-feeding, if they choose to do that.
"To make the transition between maternity leave and returning to work for military mothers smoother, to enhance our mission effectiveness, and to comply with standards that apply to nearly every organization outside the military, I am requiring that a mother's room be made available at every facility with more than 50 women, which means the establishment of some 3,600 rooms across the country," Carter said. ...

But, won’t that inflame the passionate rapist rages of muslim mad dogs?
So, babies on duty stations. Got it. *werescrewed*
To quote the character Dirty Harry in the Enforcer movie: what do you think this is some kind of encounter group?
Obviously in DoD today, the answer is yes.
US Army is a daycare now?
No Combat Ops during Nap Time.
There is so much wrong with that statement......
Liberals see the military as the largest Government Social Program there is.
What a pathetic joke.
We will lose the next major war if this bullcrap is allowed to continue.
See how the liberals like living under occupation.
We will see if the enemy occupiers puts up with the Black Lives Matter Crowd, the homosexual agenda, the environmentalist wackos, etc.
“Will you bad guys stop firing those guns!? Baby is sleeping!”
“To get to us, you have to get through the nursing women.”
Ooohhh if the soldier is a mother, she can breastfeed the baby. I thought the headline meant something else entirely.
..to enhance our mission effectiveness, and to comply with standards that apply to nearly every organization outside the military...
We are so screwed. I don’t think we will make it through another year under this Communist administration.
That’s what I wondered. Where are these babies that need feeding?
Whew! Well alrighty then. As long as they can breastfeed and NOT carry firearms we should be in good shape!
What a fighting machine Obama has built. A sissified, wimpy, social experiment that used to be called a fighting military machine.
LOL, another angle to employ to illustrate the ridiculousness of the situation.
They must be joking. This will just increase the number of women who will be unavailable for duty and a man will have to replace them. So will a sub surface mid patrol so a female can start maternity leave?
Just hang out a sign in a foxhole or behind a sniper stand, "Shhh, baby sleeping!"
On military mobile units and airplanes, signs hanging in the windows, "Baby on Board!"
