As a veteran . That was raped while serving in the US Army .
I believe that the Military encourges soldgers to be routhless and agresive .
I am not saying that all military personel are criminals. But I believe that people that join the military . Need to know what to should expect. My experence in the army destroyed the person that I was before joining the army.
The military has an important function . But it does protect the sexual preditors in it's ranks. This is something that has gone on sense there have ben soldgers. This needs to be stoped. How do you stop something. That is being done by the very people. That are in the upper ranks?
If you can read this, thank a teacher. If you can read this in english, thank a veteran

I can read this in English as a second language. I guess I thank Rosetta stone.

I do thank all the soldiers of my own country, as well as others, who have sacrifice for the freedoms and ideals of their countries. But I don't believe that to be a 'good soldier', you must give up your own honor and no longer fit into your society. I think such thoughts, it do more disservice to the soldiers that we honor.

i agree. to be a good soldier doesn't mean you become a menace to society. but every soldier isn't perfect. you really make it sound like they all become the terminator. every male in my family up until my generation have been in the military and have medals and decorations up to the yin-yang, and we are all good christian men. sure, we have our faults, but who doesn't? that is just humanity. i understand that you were hurt by soldiers, but please don't stereotype my family as the same people who hurt me. that hurts deeper. i wouldn't trade my family for the world. and i really hope you don't feel i'm condemning you, i just don't think it's fair that not just my family, but every man in the military is an abuser. that's not a tag we should throw around so freely. that's a huge accusation! the men in my family have never and i don't think would ever hurt me like my abusers did. i really think that that statement should be retracted and or rephrased.

Much Love,
Philip
