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.

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.

Events are taking place across the nation in recognition of Armed Forces Week. Currently, less than one percent of our population wears the uniform as compared to more than 12 percent during World War II. Those numbers are set to shrink even more in response to the President declaring an end to the 12-year-plus "global war on terror." Thousands of members will exit with discharge lessons in mind of the risks ahead. Perhaps, even greater challenges lie ahead for those on the other side of trauma.
Lydia Davey, a former U.S. Marine, is one of tens of thousands who experienced military sexual trauma and post-traumatic stress while serving, and beyond. As a columnist for Military 1 and The Huffington Post she's defined the lessons learned since discharge, and their application to heal, forgive, and forge ahead.
She reported that "more veterans than ever before are reporting post-traumatic stress. This is a good thing. Combat is stressful. Rape is stressful. The loss of your buddies is stressful ... we can't muscle through trauma alone." Lydia describes the endeavor of healing and forgiveness as an even greater risk than "donning body armor and loading weapons" during Afghanistan deployment.
"Challenging your heart to heal as an incredibly powerful thing," she says. Whether you're a veteran who's experienced military trauma, helping a veteran on the other side of it, or simply looking for entrepreneur insights, this episode is one you won't want to miss. Tune in to meet Lydia Davey, successful vetrepreneur, motivational speaker, Founder and CEO of Moriah Creatives Public Relations, project manager, author of The Adventures of Puppi and Burma (a story of a homeless veteran and his two pets), and an "Outward Bound" veteran dogsledding participant.

Deacon Emmanuel lives in Ghana. In times past, he masturbated and watched ography; but stopped by God’s grace. He wrote us regarding having sex and seeing naked women in his dreams and when he wakes up, there would be sperm on the bed. Every relationship would also end up in disappointment. Deacon Emmanuel ministers the Gospel of Christ Jesus to many, but wonders why he keeps experiencing these demonic sexual attacks. With permission, listen to Deacon Emmanuel complete session in which the LORD God reveal the “root” cause to his problem and set him TOTALLY free. Shalom †
