Breastfeeding Moms By Infantry Barracks ‘Not Fooling Anyone’ G-Had October 21, 2012 Marine Corps 81 Comments Follow Duffel Blog: CAMP HORNO, CA – A pair of breastfeeding airmen outside the infantry barracks at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton “aren’t fooling anyone,” according to Gunnery Sergeant Leon Rashaun of 1st Battalion 4th Marines. The mothers, Senior Airman Rebecca Henderson and Airman First Class Emily Rowe, who are normally stationed at Edwards Air Force Base, have been coming by every day for the past two months, which, according to Gunny Rashaun, “is exactly how long both their husbands have been deployed overseas.” Both women waved at the Gunnery Sergeant, prompting him to give a forced smile through gritted teeth. Senior Airman Henderson then asked if Alpha Company had come back from their field operation yet. Airman First Class Rowe then laughed and reminded her that Alpha Company had been in the field last week and Charlie Company was out this week. “I’m just so happy to be out here with my son Seth,” Senior Airman Henderson said, nursing her infant in front of a large crowd of Marines. “The Marines here have been so supportive, asking if they can carry my son’s diaper bag, help burp him, massage my shoulders, that sort of thing.” “We’re totally supportive of all the young mothers around here,” said Sergeant Nathan Devine, also of 1st Battalion 4th Marines. “It can be awfully difficult for them, what with their husbands all the way in Afghanistan… so far away…” Corporal Anthony Bugg agreed: “If they want to breastfeed in public, or just in the privacy of our barracks rooms, that’s fine with us.” According to the American Association of Pediatrics, breastfeeding is a critical health decision, vital to the welfare of new infants, a fact repeatedly stressed by Corpsman HM3 Richard Hanson. “New mothers need to breastfeed as often as possible, no matter how sore or tired they may be,” said HM3 Hanson. “That’s why all our corpsmen are trained in the art of proper nipple stimulation to help them ensure that their baby gets an adequate supply of milk.” Don't miss the next story.Get the latest news and alerts from Duffel Blog delivered to your inbox—free.

Charissa Vecente says: August 8, 2014 at 4:58 AM I just saw this. Disgusting absolutely disgusting. What the hell is happening to our military. These women represent the chairforce not the air force and if their leadership did nothing disciplinary they should lose their commission.

Robert Tamboer says: February 15, 2014 at 8:24 PM Air Force ladies at a marine post and in a marine unit. Know these stories are fake, but this is clearly out of the box. Jessica Pulley says: February 15, 2014 at 8:24 PM This story has to be fake, if my senior chief saw me breast feeding a child in front of a bunch of marines I’d get my ass handed to me. Not to mention they are violating uniform regulations by having their shirts pulled up, their blouses unbuttoned and their hair bun looks like shit. lol Christine Gabriel says: February 15, 2014 at 8:24 PM Ummm it stated that “Senior Airman Henderson said, “I’m just so happy to be out here with my son Seth,” Anyone else notice that all three kids nursing are all girls?…. So this obviously not real… Thomas Reidenbach says: February 15, 2014 at 8:24 PM Why do I get the feeling that those that believe these stories are real are the same ones who voted for Obumma. Oh that’s right, they believe just about anything. Logan Tucker says: January 8, 2014 at 3:09 AM Best part about these stories are the people who don’t know they are fake paying their comments. Awesome. Love satire. Fred Madousky says: January 3, 2014 at 2:55 AM You guys are all idiots…..this is funny! I can’t wait to see what the TV show “Enlisted” is like.

Steve Johnson says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM It was always hard when I had to stimulate nipples while I was an active duty Corpsman; I’m still having to train nipple skillsets a few times a week, even as an old man! Matt Swan says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM I wish I could claim that as my third MOS. Dean Akkerman says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM I don’t know…seems to me if I was doing something “natural” ie; taking a shit but if it were in the lawn of the generals house, I’m sure I’d be in a world of shit. why is that? Gary Bailey says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM Always a good time over here….glad that for the bulk of my time I was on the other side of the mountain in Mateo….lol…. Doc Bailey says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM Num Num. I’m surprised some famished Marines fresh from the field haven’t asked to hop on after on of the little buggers is done. Doug Boling says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM During one of my first safety briefs in the Army my PSG said, “If you see a bunch of enthusiastic new girls out at the bars this weekend with tan lines on their fingers, slip away. 1st Brigade just deployed.” Haha. Jesse Willette says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM rofl Mike Harris says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM Breastfeeding or not, air force girls have been treating Marines real nice since 1947. I married my zoomie. Im sure im not the only Jarine to do so. Charles Uygongco says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM “That’s why all our corpsmen are trained in the art of proper nipple stimulation to help them ensure that their baby gets an adequate supply of milk.” Dear big Navy. We NEED this! John Russell says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM barracks rats contribute to unit cohesion, and improve moral. one team, one fight, one girl, shariing. Zdenko Buzz Muller says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM Sonya, will you be doing this. Mark Dunlap says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM I KNEW the Marines had their sensitive side…..just never saw it. Thanks for this story! Jonathan Jenkins says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM LOL @ proper nipple stim Mike Mercer says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM Of course they would be good looking Air Force troops since TDB has revealed the USAF Hotties Recruiting scam. Rob Masi says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM Hahahahaha. It would be a serious matter if we took them seriously in the first place. Women are so funny when they pretend to be equals, yet always seem to want special exceptions. I wonder why that is? Téil Kim says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM I love how the blog decided to share this on Mother’s Day. Learning Man says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM That’s why I was “Doc”. You must utilize all available skills and talent. Danielle Wright says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM Yeah, you guys are usually pretty awesome, but this “hurr hurr look at them slutty slut whores amirite damn cheating bitches” misogynistic BS is a swing and a miss for me. Micah Albrecht says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM the best chow in the corps. Christopher Blake says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM I died at the last part, Corpsman up! (Pun intended) Wendy Burris-Piccirilli says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM It would be rather easy to get the correct rank for this little piece of “journalism”. But that would mean you would actually have to do a little research, god forbid. Also, both of these Airman were posing for a Breastfeeding ad. Ken Warner says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM LOL! As if the statements from the lower enlisted weren’t clear enough, the last sentence makes it perfectly clear John Steven Bogue says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM I have no idea what the fuck I just read Demetrio Montoya says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM You guys are all idiots http://www.airforcetimes.com/article/20120601/NEWS/206010306/Guard-official-Breastfeeding-airmen-violated-policy-uniforms. Missy Nolf says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM I’m just curious why these, ahem, ladies, would be in the barracks in the first place. Sounds like they’re just looking for attention… Matt McCord says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM “The Marines here have been so supportive, asking if they can carry my son’s diaper bag, help burp him, massage my shoulders, that sort of thing.” Are fucking kidding me? Sounds to me like they are trying to get some action on the side while their husbands are away. Disgusting. Michael Spittler says: December 15, 2013 at 6:21 PM notice in the picture that one is actually wearing staff sgt stripes, not one is wearing A1C WOLF (Warrant Officer Liberation Front) says: October 25, 2012 at 9:39 PM We are for their cause! WOLF Out! leftoftheboom says: October 24, 2012 at 6:48 AM I tried to tell the judge that It was respect for the mothers to allow them to breast feed in public. They were providing nurishment from their bodies the way God intended to the ones they love. He slapped me with a fine for indecent exposure. He said a 25 year old man is not allowed to breast feed from a 20 year old woman in public. I filed a counter suit for age discrimination.

Gomer says: October 23, 2012 at 5:13 AM Duffelblog needs a like button Rooster says: October 22, 2012 at 11:35 PM Ahh yes, nice of those ladies to give all those marines an opportunity to help them nurse. i’m sure there were ample eager hands to help get their breasts exposed. mighty nice of those boys. and to line up to train like that is such a good thing as well. Kate Gosselin's uterus says: October 22, 2012 at 6:32 PM That picture just gave me a chubby… dwadafam says: October 22, 2012 at 12:29 PM I just choked on my yogurt. This is freaking hilarious. Lt. Butero-Trinkejo says: October 22, 2012 at 12:03 AM I applaud these young women for raising awareness of feeding their children. I remember two women who did similar things at my post. Yes, they would come in on a daily basis and they would get assistance from many of our young troops in feeding their youngsters. I must have been a very complicated procedure because there would be such a racket that would emerge from the rooms. I remember one day a line of 20-30 guys were lined up to “train” on how to feed the baby. This must have been some new technique I was not familiar with. Army Wife (P) says: October 22, 2012 at 12:23 AM Brilliant! bubba_jack says: October 21, 2012 at 10:55 PM with their husbands all the way in Afghanistan… so far away… hahaha! leftoftheboom says: October 21, 2012 at 10:21 PM The mom with the twins is less maternal and more slutty than the mom on the right. She’s like “yeaa milk it baby” leftoftheboom says: October 21, 2012 at 10:19 PM I like a couple of hits of milk for my coffee. Yumm. Saxon says: October 21, 2012 at 1:36 PM Babyfeeders FTW! SFC Tucker says: October 21, 2012 at 9:20 AM That’s so wrong, and therefore, Comedy Gold™! Dianne says: October 21, 2012 at 9:07 AM that’s just plain hysterical Sharon Fuller says: October 21, 2012 at 8:41 AM Lol!!!
