Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas, recently dedicated a room to nursing mothers. Air Force veteran and photographer Tara Ruby visited the room. She saw it was comfortably furnished, but needed something on the walls.
Ruby remembered using empty offices and restrooms as they came available so she could pump milk during her own service. So she planned a series of pictures of uniformed, active duty soldiers breastfeeding their kids outside on the military base in the fresh air. She hopes these photos will be used to decorate the new room, according to CNN.
Ruby posted one photograph of ten uniformed soldiers breastfeeding to Facebook, but it was taken down. The second time she posted it to Facebook, it stayed up, but several others reported it being taken down when they tried to share it. Facebook has a stated policy that breastfeeding pictures are not subject to takedown, but someone may need to remind them occasionally.
