The Empire Strikes Back

Army Specialist Alexis Hutchinson has been arrested and jailed for failing to report for overseas duty.
She failed to report, not because she didn't want to go, but because she couldn't find a responsible person to look after her 11 month old child while she was away.
Call me old-fashioned, but I don't think much of a government that will send mothers of infant children into combat zones. 
I don't think much of a military that will put assignment ahead of the health of a baby.
One more example of America losing its way.
