I Am In Recovery After 37 Years


terryneal

Question

MST was devastating to me. Raped and assaulted 3 times in the Navy within 6 months and then treated awful when I reported and asked for help. I finally finished my story and published it on Amazon. I was surprised that after years in the publishing industry no editor wanted to publish about men and MST...or maybe I shouldn't be surprised. We've always been ignored. So I self-published on Amazon. I call the book The Year of My Enlightenment, and yes, there is a bit of sarcasm intended in the title because of the horror of that year and the absurdity of the military.

Congrats on the book bud, and I too have experienced this horrible act when I was a child. God bless you and good luck to you.

Congrats. Sorry to hear about your experience but nothing surprises me with the military. I hope putting your words on paper (so to speak) has therapeutic value for you.

Big, bad, macho military does not want to admit MST against males. I guess raping females is normal and just occupational hazard of military life for women according to Command. I don't mean that it is acceptable. The rapist should be spending life in prison. 20,000 MST cases a year in military!!!!
