Worldwide Deployable

There seems to be no end to the novel issues confronting our thoroughly modern military: "Military Moms Breastfeeding in Uniform Stirs Controversy"

I found this sentence from the story particularly interesting: "The Army, for example, didn't even come up with a combat uniform for women until 2010, so accepting the idea of a uniformed soldier breastfeeding a baby may be especially jarring."

But that was then.  No doubt now the Department of Defense has already commissioned a blue-ribbon panel with the task of developing a new combat uniform for breastfeeding women.  As soon, that is, as it finishes its more immediate charge of designing a new uniform for cross-dressing men.
