I am a military rape survivor. I was 18 when another soldier raped me. I told and no one helped. None of my leaders, not the physician I reported to. That says "WE DON'T CARE".
I am asking you all to please help us. We need treatment for our wounds, we need safety, away from our perpetrators and we need this to be handled in an Special Victims Unit run by social workers, lawyers and professionals, NOT in our Chain of Command.
You have given them 30 plus years to fix this and 52 servicemembers a day are being raped by other American Servicemembers! Please treat this as an emergency! Because it is!
