Rape in the US Military

The old boys network is alive and well in the military . The men have been in charge , in the majority, for so long that they have a system designed to protect them when they commit criminal acts. Women have been in the military serving faithfully for many years now, and , the system has not changed to start protecting their rights as well.
If you did not see the video, you must watch it. The system rapes these women again, after they have already been victimized. War may be hell, but, there shouldn't be rape from your own unit members while you are serving your country.

The military system of justice needs a complete overhaul. Let's not wait as long as we had to for them to recognize PTSD, or Agent Orange exposure.
