As 2011 came to a close, the Pentagon released a report indicating a rise in reports of sexual assault in military academies. This young former Marine speaks or her own continual sexual harrassment, brutal assault and rape by multiple Marines serving with her while at Parris Island, North Carolina and continuing during her training at Ft. Meade, Maryland.

She says efforts to seek help from military M.D.s fell on deaf ears despite intense trauma that left her with cervical damage, unrelenting nightmares and in constant fear. After seeing what happened to other women when they did report being raped, this soldier went U.A. with the support of her family. She was picked up and jailed before being discharged without benefits.
