Former Air Force service member Tara Ruby says when she was active duty, "support for breastfeeding moms wasn't even an option to consider," according to her Facebook post.

The photographer, who was excited to hear about a nursing room in the headquarters of Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas, said she'd lend her services to donate photos to brighten up the room, according to CNN. Ruby previously served in the Air Force from 1997 to 2001.

"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," she said on Facebook.

A photo of a group of active duty military moms breastfeeding in uniforms has gone viral with over 8,000 shares on Facebook.

"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."
