This undated self-portrait provided by Army Spc. Alexis Hutchinson shows Spc. Hutchinson and her son, Kamani. Hutchinson is an Army cook and single mother based at Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, Ga. who could face criminal charges after she refused to deploy to Afghanistan, saying she had no family able to care for her child.

BOTH! They're beautiful. I can't believe she could face criminal charges over something like that. Who would they expect to care for her child if she has no family?

They expect her to leave the military. I will publish a post on this tomorrow Villager. I was a single mom in the Army. And I would say there are more than a few single military moms who are less sympathetic than probably most civilians.

I plan to post about this incident in the next few hours. I am glad to see that other Black bloggers are going to do the same.

Symphony & Lady Deb - I look forward to seeing the post from each of you...

Devilish Southern Belle - Thank you for visiting my blog and sharing your village voice. I think that the military wants her to leave. It is likely that she'll need to make a decision if the military isn't helpful...
