There are ten of them, dressed head to toe in camouflage, each holding a baby in their arms.
They are female soldiers, and a photo of them breastfeeding their children in uniform has gone viral.
The photo, taken by Tara Ruby, a former member of the Air Force, was created to serve as decoration in a new breastfeeding room at Fort Bliss in El Paso, Texas.
"I thought it was be nice to offer some photographs as an additional show of support," Ruby, now a photographer, told CNN. "Seeing a picture like that helps mothers understand they can be an active soldier and provide support to their children."

Ruby, who served in the Air Force from 1997 to 2001, said no such room was available to her when she was in the military. Instead, she used empty offices and bathrooms to pump after her first son was born.
She was so inspired by the nursing room, she came up with the idea for the photo shoot.
Ruby posted the now-viral photo to her Facebook page, and received more than 8,000 shares, garnering praise from mothers, former soldiers and supporters. She also posted it to her Instagram account.
“I just left active duty after having my baby,” one mother commented. “This is truly beautiful.”
“This is a beautiful way to show how much women give of themselves to country and family,” another commenter said.
Ruby worked with Fort Bliss Public Affairs and Garrison command to get the shoot approved, then sought models through a Fort Bliss support group for mothers.
“I think it's great the Army is supporting active duty mothers," Ruby said. "Sometimes, you hit a point in your military career where you have to choose between being a soldier and a mother, and a photo like this helps mothers so they don't have to choose.”
