ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the challenges concerning breastfeeding faced by military mothers in the U.S. The author states that regarding postpartum deployment deferments, no changes have occurred from the U.S. Department of Defense. She notes that the U.S. Marine Corps is the only branch of service that has revised their policy to address the need for an extended postpartum deployment deferment. She stresses that women from all branches of service should be given a 12 month deployment deferment.
