    Nice ploy. "Hey Mom, I don't want to go to that hellhole, so tell them you won't take care of my kid." Another reason women shouldn't be in combat. No mention of "babydaddy".

    Women in the military get knocked up in huge numbers before deployments. Many of the barracks here on Ft. Campbell are full of single expectant-mothers waiting out their unit's deployments.

    I would think so many of you who pull the "support our troops" card would be furious that she was kicked out the way she was... What's wrong guys? Does that card only apply if its on your bumper or in a politically convenient talking point?
