Alyssa Milano is not the only person out there who makes no apologies for breastfeeding.

A picture of 10 military moms, as former Air Force service member Tara Ruby snapped the image in response to learning about a new nursing room at Fort Bliss Army Base in El Paso, Texas.

"Today I believe we made history," Ruby wrote on Facebook.

"To my knowledge, a group photo to show support of active duty military mommies nursing their little's has never been done. It is so nice to see support for this here at Fort Bliss."

The photo has stirred up some controversy, however.

When it first went up on Ruby’s Facebook page Thursday, it suddenly “disappeared” for unknown reasons, she wrote.

But Ruby then shared it again, along with the following message:

"I was active duty a long time ago when support for breastfeeding moms wasn't even an option or a consideration. We have come so far. Breastfeeding their babies doesn't make them less of a soldier, I believe it makes them a better one.

"Juggling the tasks and expectations of a soldier, plus providing for their own in the best way they possibly can, makes these ladies even stronger for it.

"I want to say Thank You to everyone that saw my vision, and helped us in succeeding in making it come true. I am 100% for #normalizebreastfeeding. How about you?"

Well... how about you?!? We know where the following celebrities stand:
