... I grew in the naval area of Norfolk Va. Every male member of my family has served in the military. It is not unheard of for some women in the military to intentionally get pregnant to avoid deployment.
While I feel for this single mother's struggles, being a single mother myself, I have no sympathy for women who join the military then act surprised when they are called to duty and make excuses to avoid fulfilling their obligations. If you don't want to go to some god forsaken shit hole defending your country... then don't enlist.
