Armed Forces Day - We Support and Salute our Troops and their Families
Wisdom comes from experience, understanding is when you come to realize why God survived you through your trials and tribulations. Despite the many obstacles I faced during my 20 journey of serving in our military, there was never a day that I chose to submit to unlawful sexual harassment, assault or rape.
For those of you who are following the endless news stories of our veterans being raped, sexually assaulted and abused by our senior military officials, Congress or President Obama has yet to provide our veterans the same equal protection that our veterans are willing to provide for our American citizens.
I believe in Dr. King's message, "Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere."
Reach out to a fellow veteran and "thank" them for their service. I also encourage you to contact your local Congressional representatives in support of better rights and protection for our veterans who are still serving on active duty, defending our country.
Help us fight against military rape, sexual assault and unlawful workplace abuse against our young men and women. Thank you for your service!
