  •  As a former CG enlisted, (12+ / 0-)

    all I can say is that you have my full and undivided support as a concerned voter and vet. That is an intolerable and reprehensible attitude on the part of my former service and it must be stopped now.

    Gay, lesbian, or straight, all military rapes should be prosecuted, no exceptions. I often didn't think much of the CG officer corps in my day, and your experience simply reinforces my long-held opinion. I'm sorry they haven't changed much in the 30 years I've been out, and I'm sorry that you are even having to make this revelation. Damn.

    Let me know if you need any help with writing letters of shame. I'll do what I can, in turn. I may have been just an E-5, a Radioman, but I can still type, and I can still express myself, so I will use the weapons I have.
