a married and and east texas i bought my own little house and the military was something i always wondered till i come from the family i was always taught that it's every citizen's duty to join the military if you can you should. so i want to go ahead and join and start a career. but air force i was 17 years old i had a boyfriend that encouraged me to go in so that's why he didn't give you permission to go. when i was in high school i was impressed with the marines that i had met colonel that used to run laps around the truck after soccer practice and he said he'd be perfect for the marine corps because a really smart and that's what the marine corps needs the professionalism the camaraderie everything about it and spared me. after i graduated high school i left for orlando florida which was the 1st time i was ever on an airplane and
12:35 am
a life. initially it was just wanting to go see the world because i'm from a really small town i had a college scholarship to go play basketball but i instead opted to go into the military. you know what i chose to do. i come from a long line of military when we had somebody from every generation on both sides of the family all the way back to of revolutionary war i had served in the armed forces and i chose the marine corps because no one in my family had ever done that . well of putting on a uniform every day and you know just getting out there and giving it my all and it's a very proud feeling. that i would have done the camp over and over again it was create the cooler ottery that discipline everything it taught
12:36 am
you who i wanted to be that's what they taught you. obviously it was different taking a shower with different people all of a sudden good. but i disagree experience i was a. saylor every single report on me was excellent grades i knew what i needed to do in my job i was a great team winner. i really enjoyed the whole challenge of it i got several different awards and kudos it was mainly men i love that i could blend in and keep up with the guys and work as hard as i. knew how to you was challenging and education was talk not my senior year i was selected to be one of the top 30 leadership positions by the company great officers there. after basic i went to the name of security for alaska i remember getting there you know issued a parka got set up in my room and then he took me to the bar which was in her
12:37 am
barracks and set down in a table were was me and about 10 other guys. and you know kind of felt like a piece of meat on a slab at that point and i never wanted to turn around and leave so much of my life that i couldn't. hit. it i. did care how i met corey december 17th of 2007 i was on watch when she got to the station and. this blew me away when she walked in. please write . orders ok thank you. the command told us that she was coming then there were some issues but we didn't none of the crew knew exactly what had
12:38 am
happened and i didn't find out for a long time. i was stationed in saginaw michigan. i was only. female in my section. i had a supervisor it got to the place where i get calls at 3 o'clock in the morning and he'd be drunk at a bar telling me to come get him and i'm like i can i'm in bed and he would then threaten me. i'd walk in from training and he'd be sleeping in my bed. when we went to one of the higher ups the chain of command they were all like his drinking buddy and they told me just because i didn't like somebody they were going to switch me away from this guy. it was in the evening around taps and. he had unlocked the door and he'd come in and he had an erection and he tried to get me to touch him i took my right hand and i pushed him in the chest and started
12:39 am
to yell for the other guys to kind of hear me they. hit me across. the left side of my face i remember. holding the closet thinking what just happened. to my face hurts so. when we went to the command about it i mean this petty officer who saw my face. they just let it wait because they didn't want any kind of problems going on. a couple weeks later i needed the key to do my cleanup so i knocked on his door and he said ok yeah come on in here and here and i said no no i'm going to wait out here. and he screamed at me and he made me come in and he grabbed my own arm. the.
12:40 am
and he raped me. every thing came to a complete and the day that i was raped i got there in february. by april i. i was drugged and raped for the 1st time i had like a cold or pneumonia like symptoms and so they sent me to get shut down and while i was waiting to be examined. and came in any help himself he said he was going to the bathroom and he came into my room and and that's when he raped me the entire time i was screaming and yelling for help and for him to stop nobody came to the door and nobody came to help me and maurice cure anything they made it very very clear. that. if i said anything they were going to kill me. you know in then of course i didn't have anyone to go talk to because the people that were perpetrating me were the police. it was my 1st time ever
12:41 am
and was i've had a tough time convincing myself that i'm still over. if this is happening to me you know i can only imagine surely i'm not the only one which i found out later going through the claims process that i wasn't. just after 3 am i see a shadow of a human head over my body next thing you know that i'm awake and like he's on top of me pushed my legs apart and put himself on top of me and start pulling at my shirt and i wake up and that he's on top of me. he's already penetrated game i was drugged and i remember the sounds the smell.
12:42 am
it is locked and loaded $45.00 at the base of my skull. engaged the ball so that i knew there was around chambered all i could do was continue to concentrate on breathing slam my head against. wall and very forcefully had sex with me went to my tent pole the sleeping bag over my head and cried myself to sleep so within the 2 week period. he raped me 5 times we got tested. i had tricked and. gonorrhea and i was pregnant. he did. me. in 1991 in congressional testimony it was estimated that 200000 women had been sexually assaulted so far in the u.s. military if you take into account that women don't report because of the extreme retaliation and that was you know more than
12:43 am
a decade ago i would say you could easily double that number and it's probably somewhere near about half a 1000000 women have now been sexually assaulted in the u.s. military. when else truths seem wrong wrong why don't we all just don't hold. any world yet to shape our disdain comes to advocate and in detroit equals betrayal. when so many find themselves worlds apart we choose to look for common ground. they all see themselves as dying swans in their dreams.
12:44 am
but only one of us will ever make it to the told. they're ready to give the lines for the chance to die on stage if only once. not even broken wings come to tell them. for generations at the madrid ski theatre ballet sweat and tears. for the current trial. it was prescribed to last 3 to 4 months this is cracks a team roster towel program this is the annex. i'm tired of taking all these men i just want the v.a. to fix my job. i was having the most horrible pain in my face
12:45 am
so i went to the dentist because i thought it was just my teeth or something was wrong. the doctor came in after the x. rays and asked me if i had been in a car accident when he hit me in my face he dislocated my jaw and it sent both of my dist forward in my face so i don't have a need for my where they should be in my face they told me i'd probably need a partial bone replacement for my bone it playing on my nerves for so long is starting to actually disintegrate. i've been on a soft diet for 5 years now. i can eat the foods that i everything is potatoes chalo. times. a lot of.
12:46 am
times. that there was. my dad my brother prior navy in the army national guard and. in the family in. was excited and completely just going and all my family was proud of me. as my biggest hero. told us and your own
12:47 am
being taken care of and i guess that's one of the hard things that i have to accept because i told her that she would be. who's in february we got a call. one who is dying and he. rubbed his hand all over my entire body and. he said i own all of this. and i was absolutely scared didn't know what to do my dad. when the 1st thing she said was bad. and. i said. what happened he said i was right.
12:48 am
and you're a virgin. because. tribute. don't ever think you're. my main nerve in my spine was 3 places and my hips were rotated. my title is director of military plans and personnel policy for the navy. we have specifically trained judge advocates our navy lawyers in our naval criminal investigative service those investigators are all specifically trained in sexual assault any report of a sexual assault is fully investigated in the united states navy they didn't take care of it for a year and a half they were tracking down witnesses they had all the students there and they could walk them down and say hey you're only hold targets a statement. and i didn't you know went through 3 investigators it was like ok i'm
12:49 am
giving this case that's what it's sort of oh and i'm giving this case i'm going to take care of it oh well this is really want to really want to deal with it females would come up to their commanders or their and ceo's and say that they were either sexually assaulted or abused and i don't think it was taken seriously i think a lot of times a cursory investigation was done and they were basically told to just suck it up a member bring in a young service member been brutally raped and bring her in to see or command and try to make sure that this girl was taken care of properly and this idiot. the city . towards top crocus built milk out of time and the credibility of the witness was called into account had the potential victim had she made claims like this in the past there was a lot of witch hunting going on i was ordered to advise a victim of her rights for false statement when i knew that she wasn't lying i was
12:50 am
asked to bring her in advise her of her rights like a criminal and interrogate her for false statement quote unquote until i got the truth out of her. what we hear again and again from soldiers who have been raped is that as bad as it was being raped what was as bad if not worse was to receive professional fratelli ation in their chosen career merely because they were raped when you report something. you better be prepared for the repercussions if a man gets accused of rape it's a setup the woman's life i could choose to report it but if i wasn't if you know if they found that what i was saying wasn't to be truthful than i would be reduced in rank you could lose your rate you could lose rank you could lose your school if you file a false report 'd so do you want to file a report. with the. everything in the 1st my friend
12:51 am
numerate me they sound believe me i reported it to different times to my squad leader and he told me that there is nothing he can do about it because they didn't have any proof they actually did charge me with adultery. i wasn't married he was they took me before mike my and the tank commander and he says you think this is funny and i said what do you mean his like a solid job like what do you mean they go see the 3rd girl report rape this week even as they all in cahoots you think is a game. ok
12:52 am
and how hard is i usually take a. really. hard . 14 months what. is going on with the v.a. . mine is new. but we were there 1st and then. this goes everywhere with me. and this goes everywhere with me. you always have protection with jesus but sometimes you need just a little bit more. time to go. it
12:53 am
was they c of course they. they ordered they ordered a packet. but. we should have they should know you should know what's wrong with me like read my stuff and you'll see that it's my face it's not my back it's not my legs my arms it's my need to prove i don't even know what your case is even like honoring the know why waste the gas money the trip anything it was completely a waste of time but a good veteran's day right. it's a perfect way to spend. it. because it was an isolated duty station they were in charge and we were just like cattle.
12:54 am
it was the 1st time i was drugged and raped i was this room where some of my friends and family had like one or 2 drinks and when laid down it was like instantly i was not feeling well and came to having a pillow over my head in my friend. raping me. that went on repeatedly. most sex offenders are hunters just like any hunter they study their prey they study their movements to study the behaviors they study the environment. you have rapists that prey on other human beings they they stalk them they they wait until the victim is that the most vulnerable point in time to perpetrate their crimes a lot of times the victim is somebody that the suspect is very familiar with and they're very aware of what's going on most sex offenders have this hidden persona
12:55 am
that nobody ever sees except for the victim therefore when they're caught or if somebody reports people don't tend to believe that because they don't see the typical sex offender if it's an officer it's an officer that has had a bit chilly in the past preyed on and enlisted they would do it once they get away with it and then they think wow this was pretty easy i'm going to try to get and particularly for a savvy perpetrator to work within a relatively closed system like the military it becomes a prime. a target rich environment for a predator. what
12:56 am
a was discharged they moved to seattle or things got really bad. i started to lose everything. is homeless. the addiction to selling drugs crack a guy. 40 percent of homeless female veterans have been raped while they were surfing they spit into such depression and it appears that they can't hold jobs they can hold their lives together and they end up on the streets when i 1st saw training as at the gym and i look over and it was like the universe was like a gal. in my head i was like you are i know there are some special of our. wow for hair when we 1st started dating it was hard. the biggest hurdle was not taking p.t.s.d.
12:57 am
personally it does get really stressful i'm sort of said to have never known before and you want to sort of in her prime now she's anxious and sad a lot of. going to go going to go back even. if they come. to terms and thank you for out doing something you know michel be like check it like it's ok trina it's i have appreciative of it you know they may see me really. sad that here's this little 11 year old boy that's watching out for my wellbeing. and hurts you know i wanted to go away. you know and it doesn't go away.
12:58 am
again we stand on the brink of war we should not be surprised official washington was quick to blame iran for the attack on saudi energy assets iran has denied involvement while the movie of claimed responsibility will trump take the neo-con bait and set the middle east on fire. to revise the but if he warned you and i do sure would be sure that there was more of those. new speech you see me we need to have the truth.
12:59 am
because and. when he dies e.t.s. will be home and in the news i mean guys are that infants involved. a lot of you will see sawing as if parts about 2 kids each other both sides. but as in the adults to me as if. the. cabinet 5 days doing this is. in english they do you think people who simply do something new to manipulate in. what politicians do. they put themselves on the line they get accepted or rejected . so when you want to be president and should. somehow want to.
