      Nursing room available at Shaw Air Force Base

      SHAW AIR FORCE BASE, S.C. (AP) - Nursing women at a major Army headquarters in South Carolina don't have to hide in a rest room if they want to breast-feed their babies or express milk for their young.

      Women soldiers and civilian employees as well as spouses visiting the headquarters are celebrating the very low-tech room. This $100 million command center now has a room set up exclusively to support nursing mothers, just as moms everywhere celebrate Mother's Day on Sunday.

      Army spouse Dianna Troyer says she's excited the Army installation has allowed a lactation room, which she can use when attending family support dinners and events. Troyer thinks the room will encourage more women to nurse their infants.
