THE FIELD REPORT: Medical care on and off the Field. We are featuring news stories around our Wounded Warriors and this is a unique chance for us to hear about MST firsthand from a U.S. Soldier in his own words. We will be interviewing Michael Fortune, someone who will help us better understand Military Sexual Trauma
Military sexual trauma (MST) is a real problem for both women and men. On this episode we'll focus on the female perspective. Did you know that research suggests 66% of women in the military report being sexually assualted? Or that 27% report being raped? Dr. Kim Dennis, CEO of Timberline Knolls Residential Treatment Center offers insights into what it takes and how you can overcome the negative effects of MST.

SEXUAL TRAUMA - WHILE SERVING IN THE MILITARY
Warning: Study says 1 in 3 Women RAPED in the Military
source: American Journal of Industrial Medicine
by A.G. Sadler, et al.
American Journal of Industrial Medicine, 43:262-273 (2003). Important,
The view of women as sexual prey rather than as responsible adults has always been part of military culture. Women today are indispensable to the military. Nevertheless, one woman soldier observed: "There are only three things the guys let you be if you're a girl in the military - a bitch, a ho, or a dyke." Not all military men see women soldiers this way, but too many do. The hostility is shown by undermining women's authority, denying promotions, denigrating their work, sexual harassment, sexual assault and rape.

Dear Mr. President,
It is time to reform the military justice system. We cannot keep putting our military service members in a position where commanders, who are not legally trained, hold the keys to justice. We need you to declare your support for a military justice system that operates outside the accused’s chain of command. The boss of your rapist should not decide whether to investigate and prosecute your rape, and should not have the power to select the jury. It’s un-American. Please take a stand and change the system.(http://justice.protectourdefenders.com/)
April is Sexual Assault Awareness month (http://www.sapr.mil/index.php/saam) so CJ and I are dedicating tonight’s show to the topic of Military Sexual Trauma. Sexual Assault in the military is a rising problem and is something we want to make America aware about. It is a taboo sort of topic that does not get a lot of coverage in the news so this is out attempt at getting the word out there. It is one that is both embarrassing for the victim and the military as a whole. We would love to think that every service member is honorable and has values and morals but the truth is, just like in our society, that is not always the case. The convicted have ranged from lower enlisted to Drill Sergeants to senior leaders. There is even an ongoing trial right now where a One-star General is accused of such acts.
We have several guests on who have been victims of sexual assault during their military service. These guests are both female and male, which is important because this is not just a female problem. We are hoping other people will listen to the show, and if motivated to do so, call in if they have personal stories that they would feel comfortable sharing. It may not be something they were directly involved in, but maybe a connection they have to a case. We will be talking about the impact these acts have on the victim, their loved ones, the unit and the military as a whole. This is a tough topic but one that needs to be covered. We hope that by covering this topic tonight on Top Talk, it will encourage other victims who may have stayed silent and are still fighting with demons today to come forward and seek help and move beyond such horrific events.

Trauma is a form of physical, sexual or psychological abuse, which has caused extreme stress and overwhelmed a person’s ability to cope. What one individual deems as a trauma may not be the same as another person’s, it is an individual’s subjective experience that determines whether an event is or is not traumatic. After experiencing a traumatic event, either as a child or an adult, some people are able to heal, move forward and live a fulfilling life. Listen to this segment of The NLP View Radio Show, as host, Donna Blinston RGN is joined by Pamela Gawler-Wright a UKCP Registered Psychotherapist, Neuro-Linguistic Psychotherapist, Master and Certified Trainer in NLP, to discuss how NLP can address and resolve problems caused through trauma, resulting in anxiety, depression and addiction
