SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — The Washington National Guard and Fairchild Air Force Base say two nursing mothers were wrong to be photographed in uniform breast-feeding their babies.
The photos were posted on the Internet by a group on the base that supports breast-feeding mothers. Mom2Mom say the photos were meant to promote World Breast-Feeding Week in August.
But state National Guard Capt. Keith Kosik says it's a violation of regulations to use the uniform to promote a cause. He says the Guard members will likely not be disciplined but that it would be used an opportunity for education.
Base spokesman Maj. Randy Bailey says there's no issue with moms in the military breast-feeding, but campaigning in uniform is not allowed.
The base is near Spokane, Wash.
