A veteran and (now) photographer took a picture that is going viral and proving that being a mom and serving our country are not mutually exclusive. Tara Ruby posted the image to her Facebook page on Thursday, September 10th and reposted it on September 11th, after it got deleted.
On the new post, she’s garnered over 10,000 shares and 13,000 likes so far, almost all showing signs of support for the 10 women seen in uniform and breastfeeding in the picture.
“I thought it would be nice to offer some photographs as an additional show of support,” said Ruby to CNN. “Seeing a picture like that helps mothers understand they can be an active solider and provide support to their children.”
