Soldier mom refuses deployment to care for baby - Yahoo! News (http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/ap_on_re_us/us_soldier_mom_deployment)

SAVANNAH, Ga. – An Army cook and single mom may face criminal charges after she skipped her deployment flight to Afghanistan because, she said, no one was available to care for her infant son while she was overseas.

Spc. Alexis Hutchinson, 21, claims she had no choice but to refuse deployment orders because the only family she had to care for her 10-month-old son — her mother — was overwhelmed by the task, already caring for three other relatives with health problems.

Her civilian attorney, Rai Sue Sussman, said Monday that one of Hutchinson's superiors told her she would have to deploy anyway and place the child in foster care.

"For her it was like, 'I couldn't abandon my child,'" Sussman said. "She was really afraid of what would happen, that if she showed up they would send her to Afghanistan anyway and put her son with child protective services."
Hutchinson, who is from Oakland, Calif., remained confined Monday to the boundaries of Hunter Army Airfield in Savannah, 10 days after military police arrested her for skipping her unit's flight. No charges have been filed, but a spokesman for the Army post said commanders were investigating.

Kevin Larson, a spokesman for Hunter Army Airfield, said he didn't know what Hutchinson was told by her commanders, but he said the Army would not deploy a single parent who had nobody to care for his or her child.

"I don't know what transpired and the investigation will get to the bottom of it," Larson said. "If she would have come to the deployment terminal with her child, there's no question she would not have been deployed."

Hutchinson's son, Kamani, was placed into custody overnight with a daycare provider on the Army post after she was arrested and jailed briefly, Larson said. Hutchinson's mother picked up the child a week ago and took him back to her home in California.

Hutchinson, who's assigned to the 3rd Combat Aviation Brigade of the Army's 3rd Infantry Division, joined the Army in 2007 and had no previous deployments, Sussman said. She said Hutchinson is no longer in a relationship with the father.

The Army requires all single-parent soldiers to submit a care plan for dependent children before they can deploy to a combat zone.

Hutchinson had such a plan — her mother, Angelique Hughes, had agreed to care for the boy. Hughes said Monday she kept the boy for about two weeks in October before deciding she couldn't keep him for a full year.

Hughes said she's already having to care for her ailing mother and sister, as well as a daughter with special needs. She also runs a daycare center at her home, keeping about 14 children during the day.

"This is an infant, and they require 24-hour care," Hughes said. "It was very, very stressful, just too much for me to deal with."

Hughes said she returned Kamani to his mother in Georgia a few days before her scheduled deployment Nov. 5.

She said they told her daughter's commanders they needed more time to find another family member or close friend to help Hughes care for the boy, but Hutchinson was ordered to deploy on schedule.

Larson, the Army post spokesman, said officials planned to keep Hutchinson in Georgia as investigators gathered facts about the case.
"Spc. Hutchinson's deployment is halted," Larson said. "There will be no deployment while this situation is ongoing."

I guess she should have thought about that before hand. The mission of our military is to kill the enemy and break their stuff, not to provide daycare for those who expect that it should be like any other 9-5 job.

The problem she is facing is the fact she DID have a plan for childcare in case she was deployed. Unfortunately, that fell through. The military is not too understanding, when it comes to family. As the saying goes, "If you were meant to have a wife (family/child/etc), you would have been issued one." Does this mean those with family shouldn't join the military? No, it doesn't, but it does mean those people will have to be more aware of the problems that will arise with your family, as a result of being part of the military.

Exactly my point. Its not the military's responsibility to coddle her. She knew exactly what the expectations were should the unit get deployed, and if her plan fell through then she should have had a backup. Failing that, she should just accept getting chaptered out and let someone take her place that is capable of meeting the requirements of the job.

I cannot disagree with you there. The military is not for everyone and is extremely difficult for a single parent. Most people wind up not lasting too long in the military if they are said single parents. It's not saying you're a failure by leaving the military, either. It's deciding taking care of your children is more important to you than staying in the military.

Obviously you never were in the armed forces or you would understand that it is not a profession well suited to individuals that have children irresponsibly and then expect the military to let them slide on their contract. I personally had a female soldier do almost the same thing, and she was sent back to the block so fast her head was spinning. As well she should have.

Serving in the military, whether you did or did not, doesn't make you better than anyone else.

I didn't serve in the military, but I served my country as a youngster when I was incarcerated in MKULTRA/Project Monarch, a CIA trauma-based mind control program where I was abused by military personnel and other elements within our government and continue to serve my country as an adult in other ways.

The operative word would be that I'm an OPERATIVE, but in no way, shape or form would the acronym CIA proceed the word OPERATIVE.

So, what did this female soldier do to you personally that was similar to the woman in the article?

Can't answer a simple question?

Or send a mother to war when we all know she's the only one that can properly love her child. F&ck is that what happened to your pupet president obama maybe.
knowing that the americans are fully aware that some day the way they're going there gonna be useing their armies against their own people.

Saying "didnt think so" at the end of a post makes you sound like a petulant child, which you arent far from I suspect. Yes, both her Article 15 and the subsequent Chapter 13 were at my recommendation, though it really falls to the officers as to how things progress from there.
As for what happened to her afterwards, I suspect that she went Back to Mtn Home Arkansas, bought a trailer and a deep fryer, and worked at the Piggley Wiggley. Who knows. Once she was out of my platoon she was really someone else's concern.

No I dont, but I have been to western Arkansas, and that is about all there is for options there. I do have a problem with people trying to make excuses for someone's irresponsible actions that jeopardize the operational effectiveness of our soldiers who are already having a hard enough time. There are a few things that should happen to the woman in your original article. First, she ought to receive a field grade Article 15 so she can have lots of fun doing extra duty. Second, she should be court martialed for disobeying a lawfull order. Third, I wouldn't even Chapter 13 her, I would send her back with a dis-honerable discharge.

I do not know if you are placing me in with this group you are stating, but, if you are, let me clarify something for you. I have dealt with the military for most of my adult life. I joined the army back in '89. I married my ex-husband while he was in the military. My current husband is a veteran as well. Both he and I are members of a military support group. We have a ton of friends that are stationed over in Iraq and Afghanistan currently, along with many other places. Do not start to presume people have no clue what is happening regarding the military because of their stance in a post. You will find yourself to be quite mistaken more than you are correct. The point I was making is it is a difficult job to be a single parent in the military. You cannot truly do the job you were meant to do if you are a single parent. I know many who either wind up becoming single parents due to getting pregnant, a divorce, or a death of a spouse while in the military. Almost all of them wind up getting out of the military once that happens. I sympathize with that woman, but she also should have known it would happen. The military does not have too much leeway for family. That's just the way it is, and anybody that has dealt with the military would know this firsthand. Family are basically a side interest, as far as the military is concerned. I wasn't kidding when I stated in a previous post that the general belief is, if you were meant to have a family the military would have issued you one. *shakes head* I am not putting the military down. I am not putting that woman down. I am just stating facts. It is a difficult job to be part of the military in today's age.

I definitely agree with you there. What really upsets me is seeing all of these people putting down our soldiers because they don't believe in whatever is taking place, at the moment. People do not realize those in the military do not have a choice. Some would say they do. They can say no and then either be arrested or discharged. Those people don't realize just what that can do to a person's reputation, when it comes to trying to get a job out in the real world. *shakes head* Then, for people to say the military needs to have its benefits cut because they make too much, overall, compared to everybody else. Yet, a great number of our military is on welfare. I'd like to see how that would happen, if they make too much. Knowledge of what our military goes through is sadly lacking among many of the populace, and it really gets on my nerves to see people make stupid remarks that affect our military in some fashion. They experience things most of us would never even be able to imagine. They, and their families, go through hardships...year-long or more separations, sometimes with little or no word regarding how the soldier is doing, dependent upon the job the person has in the military...let alone smaller things such as plans being thrown aside because the post is suddenly on complete lockdown or the like. *shakes head* My thoughts and prayers are always with our military. My appreciations and thanks goes out to every member, present or past, for all they've sacrificed to ensure my family, friends, and me remain safe with the freedoms we have. Please, tell your son my husband and I are very grateful for him doing what he does and that we support him and all that are with him.

My experience tells me she was probably a lower enlisted person, and at that age people are pretty immature. That being said, if she had planned properly for this then the military would have most likely worked with her and found her a read detachment position or some such. The fact that she wasn't granted such an assignment tells me that she probably prevaricated and procrastinated until the last minute and then got upset about the upcoming deployment. That transgression is double considering it seems she was a cook.

That being said, if she had planned properly for this then the military would have most likely worked with her and found her a read detachment position or some such. The fact that she wasn't granted such an assignment tells me that she probably prevaricated and procrastinated until the last minute and then got upset about the upcoming deployment. That transgression is double considering it seems she was a cook.

Eire doesn't know anything about this soldier, but his perception is that he does because of his experience, which, as per usual, makes him an expert in any subject and or individuals' personal life.

Only when its applicable to the discussion. Generalizations are no less accurate by default just because they are broad.
