Rape in the Military

When I was in the service I never heard of anyone being raped (violated in such a disgusting manner).

However, this is a new military.

There were 2,947 sexual assaults reported in the military in 2006. Even though this was an increase of 24% over 2005 very few of the cases were prosecuted.

Service members (both male and female) are being raped at an alarming rate and something must be done about it !

Someone must speak up for the victims or it will only get worse.

Unless something is done it will only get worse for the military !

It will only get worse for the country and it will only get worse for society !

PTSD is common among rape victims in which 33% of the victims entertain suicidal thoughts and tendencies.

The question that must be answered by the Dept of Defense and the VA is;

How many of these active duty military personnel and/or veterans who have committed suicide or who have attempted suicide were raped and subsequently suffered or are presently suffering from PTSD from being sexually abused and violated?
