...Joyce in the mts.
anywho, i'm glad she refused the shot. if her COs had any sense, they would have simply waited until she weaned and then given the vaccine, but then that would be a reasonable decision. : it's not like soldiers nurse very long anyway, the most i've ever heard of a female soldier nursing was 9 months, and she was in a position of authority, not a lower-enlisted.
The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it. We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.
with a general discharge, she can appeal the decision in 6 months time and ask that it be changed to honrable.
My dh had to get the anthrax vax's. His were scheduled the day our baby was born so he had to leave us and go off and get them. The military really sucks, sucks, sucks... At least he got out of the smallpox vax cause we had a newborn. But I think he has to get that vax once she's about 1.

they weren't just run-of-the-mill soldiers, they were trained as arabic linguists. a rather vital job these days and one that's already in short supply.
My dh and I are glad that we left the service when we did, neither of us had to get Anthrax or Smallpox or the nastier vaxes.
More on topic: a friend of mine was trying to exclusively bf her son while in the Army. Her chain of command made her go out on excercises when her baby was only two months old. And they gave her an extreemly hard time about pumping. I ended up deciding that since I needed gov't $ to pay for my household, that I could pretty much let them dictate how my child would be fed once I returned to work. So we weaned at 6 weeks and started formula. I regret that so much.
