Badass indeed! Congratulations @choo_ek—grateful for your leadership and vision and glad it’s being recognized.
My name is Tiffany & #IAmVanessaGuillen I was sexually harassed, sexually assaulted, raped, & physically threatened, while at my first base, 12 yrs ago. I didn’t report it until 2019. I am one of the many faces of military sexual trauma. #MilitarySexualTrauma #FindVanessaGuillen
July 2011, in the barracks. I found out I was pregnant shortly after. We were both active duty. He told me he loved me & convinced me to get married. He was abusive & Army did nothing to help. Once I left, my son & I were homeless. Fort Carson betrayed me 💜
In 1995 I was drugged, raped and sodomized at NNPTC in Orlando. When I went to report it, I was told I would be dishonorably discharged for filing a false report, & I would be charged with adultery because my rapist was married. #IAMVANESSAGUILLEN #MeTooMilitary
I served active duty as a jet mechanic.
The men who sexually assaulted me are still serving in uniform today.
STATISTICALLY you are more likely to get raped by someone in the same uniform as you than you are to be shot at by the enemy. Read that again.
i was r*ped in february 2020 by a male soldier in my unit that i had known for 3 years. my leadership handled the situation very poorly after i reported it. the military needs to start giving a fuck about this shit. we are fed up. #IAMVANESSAGUILLEN
