    I am very sorry for what hapenned to you, and have no tolerance for rape in any circumstances.

    I think that the issue with my post may be a semantic one.  I am not implying in any way that victims are to blame for being raped, or that rape can always be avoided.  Perhaps the word "avoid" was a poor choice.

    I was saying that the military should provide much more comprehensive training on acceptable behavior, and also provide realistic ways for victims to come forward without harming their career. I also believe that guidance, especially for young people (teenagers in particular) can be helpful in learning what types of situations to avoid. The first lesson in self-defense is to avoid dangerous situations.

    I am not naive, and realize that no training will stop a hardened rapist. Those people need to be prosecuted and jailed.
