It's pretty sad that those particular photos could cause any controversy.  I thought they were very well done.

Apparently, breastfeeding and chewing gum are both not to be done in (US Army) uniform?

 

Gee...

I think the photo is first of all, beautiful, second of all, incredibly tactful (seriously, what is being revealed here? nothing!), and third of all, THESE WOMEN ARE SUPERHEROS! The one on the left is a SOLDIER, AND breastfeeding twins!!!!! IMO, she can do anything she wants! It absolutely blows my mind that people are really willing to criticize the women who are not only sacrificing their time and freedom to serve our country and protect us, but doing so while ALSO sacrificing their own bodies to mother their children. I would think even the anti-NIP crowd would be able to just nod and walk.

Actually, the one woman's breasts are pretty revealed, but of course I don't have a problem with that. I think they are very beautiful and are doing what they are supposed to do, times two!
