Sexual Trauma in the Military
Sexual trauma in the military is a reflection of our sexualized society. The DoD and the VA have formed divergent definitions of sexual violence and harassment that complicate tracking incidents across populations. Reporting an incident of sexual violence is daunting and both women and men face many barriers to a successful outcome. Military sexual trauma manifests both physically and mentally, with treatment inadequate in many cases. It can continue after discharge and for many years as a veteran.
