The woman who orchestrated a series of photographs featuring mothers who served in the military breastfeeding their children has been fired from her job. Chrystal Scott, the spokeswoman for military mom support group Mom2Mom, said she was fired from her civilian job as an X-ray technician after the initial uproar over the images, and she told the online news program Right This Minute that the two active-duty women in the photo had been reprimanded by the military for their involvement. The publication of the photos triggered a heated debate over what qualifies as inappropriate behavior while in military attire.
