Military Sexual Trauma: 26,000 Victims and 26,000 PervertsDr. Phillip Leveque Professor of Pharmacology Salem-News.com
MST (Military Sexual Trauma) causes the worst PTSD.
(PORTLAND, OR) - I don't know what else to call them, we do have pedophiles and they certainly are perverts assaulting helpless children. There has got to be a name for ranking sergeants and officers who take advantage of their positions of authority to assault personnel supposedly under their care.
According to whatever history is available, military sexual assaults (MSA) on women have been going on a long time both as "spoils of war" but also sergeants and officers assaulting lower ranks of their own military. Ive read these perverts go right up to admirals and generals.
In WWII, my war, the Red Cross girls called "Donut Dollies," nurses and other female personnel were "available to higher ranks". It was cynical thinking by the millions of privates but nevertheless true. Even Audie Murphy, as an enlisted man (?) had a nurse girlfriend. They weren't allowed to marry, unfortunately, she was killed in an artillery barrage in her hospital in Italy.
The statement that, "officers have their privileges" is a sorry excuse for what is happening right up to this day. My first article about this was, "Military Rape: SOP" October 16 2008, "Women Veterans Suicides" was written December 4, 2010, Military Rape" May 16 2011, and "Military Rape Back in the Headlines" June 15 2012. It also appears that the military, mostly Army and Marines, knew all about these assaults and vigorously, vengefully defended their perverts against the medically diagnosed rape victims.
We must take these violent perverted assaulters away from the cruel protection of the military trials, at least convicted rapists should do hard time behind bars. This includes generals and admirals. The same should occur at West Point, Annapolis and the Air Force Academy. We can't afford to have these perverts in the military or as civilians.
Hagel and Panetta, you know what's going on. You have the authority to do something positive.
