Photo of Military Moms Breastfeeding in Uniform Goes Viral

Tara Ruby posted the picture on Facebook.

— -- A group of combat-ready moms showed how far they've come by posing for a picture in uniform while breastfeeding their children.

The picture was conceived by photographer Tara Ruby, a former member of the Air Force who was on active duty between 1997 and 2001. Ruby is now a photographer who takes family portraits and she told ABC News that the photo quickly went viral, racking up 2.5 million views on her Facebook page.

"It has been just insane and it's so much of a response that I haven't been able to go through the comments on my Facebook page," she said. "It’s been intense."

In a Facebook post displaying the picture, Ruby said her aim for the photo was to normalize breastfeeding in the military.
