For too long, the issue of sexual violence in the military has been left in the shadows. But that's changing.

I have been watching the hearings on C-SPAN and wonder what the outcome will be, as we know the military is very slow to make changes. This does primarily focus on sexual assault but this allows affects many areas of complaints or problems withing the military, male or female.

An old military saying about problems, no matter how mild or severe - " Got a problem? Get your TS card punched." If T = tough than I think you can figure out the S.
People in the military are not well paid, and problems within the working environment have no history of being taken seriously, perhaps now we can see some changes.

Go Kirsten! We'll see what the outcome will be and I hope there will be more cases coming to light that have successfully been swept under the rug so far. Time for a change! Thx JL
