„Justice Denied

Thousands of women, probably more

I cannot reach them behind justice doors

Many stay silent, barred just like me.

Haunted by demons, faces unseen.

Still by the hundreds, they continue to serve

Duty and country, active and reserve.

Thankless, forgotten through America's wars

Scarred like their brethren, treated as foes.

Volunteered to go to the shores.

Died like the others, shamed to the core.

Where is the dignity, long since denied?

Lost in the White House of Justice Denied

Women in service since beginning of time

Often they're treated like victims in crime.

Where is their voice, silence throughout the years?

It's dead in the Senate and House, with their tears!“
Conduct Unbecoming: Rape, Torture, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from Military Commanders

„It's just that I've learned that somebody's appearance doesn't always match what's going on inside him. You can't look at a guy's face and see his demons." - Travis from The Good Father“

„What do I want now? I want to be treated with the respect I deserve in the current VA system and not be retraumatized. I want the men who did this to me to be punished and if that isn't possible, I want reassurance what happened to me will never ever happen to another woman in the Armed services. I want some restitution of the damage I have.“ Conduct Unbecoming: Rape, Torture, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from Military Commanders


„Maybe I had more wrinkles than I would if I hadn't spent so much of my life outdoors, but I didn't care. It was a privilege to grow old, and not everyone got to enjoy it. I was grateful for every minute I was given.“ The Bay At Midnight

„Conviction rates in the military are pathetic, with most offenders going free AND THERE IS NO RECOURSE FOR APPEAL! The military believes the Emperor has his clothes on, even when they are down around his ankles and he is coming in the woman's window with a knife! Military juries give low sentences or clear offender's altogether. Women can be heard to say “it's not just me” over and over. Men may get an Article 15, which is just a slap on the wrist, and doesn't even follow them in their career. This is hardly a deterrent. The perpetrator frequently stays in place to continue to intimidate their female victims, who are then treated like mental cases, who need to be discharged. Women find the tables turned, letters in their files, trumped up Women find the tables turned, letters in their files, trumped up charges; isolation and transfer are common, as are court ordered psychiatric referrals that label the women as lying or incompatible with military service because they are “Borderline Personality Disorders” or mentally unbalanced. I attended many of these women, after they were discharged, or were wives of abusers, from xxx Air Force Base, when I was a psychotherapist working in the private sector. That was always their diagnosis, yet retesting tended to show something different after stabilization, like PTSD.“ Conduct Unbecoming: Rape, Torture, and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder from Military Commanders

„She felt happy these days, yet there was always an undercurrent of sadness just below the surface. Sometimes she would feel it there and not even know its source.“

„Just know, my darling girl, that if I could, I would call you every day of your life just to say "I love you" with nothing else attached to those words. No criticism. No advice. No requests. Just to say I love you.“ The Secret Life of CeeCee Wilkes
