We live in a world that supports wars in the name of 'freedom'...yet the opposite is true. Lets invest the same time, energy and resources in education and see what a difference it will make to society.

Dear Stella: In an altruistic world your feelings could become reality. In this world, however, there are many monsters who torture rape, steal, and abuse in in every way that we cannot even imagine, as did the British to the Colonists when this Nation was forming. For example, frequently, those who simply swore allegiance to our Lord, instead of the "King", were Quartered. I won't describe it here, but I will let you pursue the gruesome details behind that barbaric procedure of...

Defense of a Free People has to be the number one priority of this Country, or enjoy your Dictatorship of your choice! Wars are necessary to keep a lasting peace! Ironic, isn't it?

Dear Abid, My parents used to tell me that you can't run away from your problems. I guess you are a case in point, I'm very sad to say. But, welcome to the USA! God Bless you and your family

Thanks for your reply Gary. I will ALWAYS love and honor our military, but will remain disappointed that the powers that be will not recognize the seriousness of these crimes. Yes, the same applies to any segment of our population. But this is about the very ones that offer themselves up for our freedoms. It's about protecting our lives, not harming us. I know it is a small percentage of perpetrators, but even one is unacceptable! And unfortunately, a good deal of the time, it is those with...

I know it is a small percentage of perpetrators, but even one is unacceptable! And unfortunately, a good deal of the time, it is those with rank who commit these acts. As you can see, I am retired from a para military organization. I understand sexual harassment. But this goes beyond harassment. Report it, and sign up for a career of misery. This is wrong on so many levels. All I'm saying is this behavior has got to be taken seriously in ALL instances. And those covering it up should be prosecuted as well. This is no different than the Penn State crimes. Those in power know that they are complicit when they do NOTHING, PERIOD!

David White, you are an animal. That kind of thinking holds us back as a society. Are you saying that you could not be in combat unless someone grabbed your penis anytime they thought it was a good idea or just for kicks. Here's the thing fella, I could cheerfully shoot someone that hurt my kids and not think a thing about it. I could got into combat and do the job. There is a huge difference between being tortured by the enemy and being manhandled by someone who is supposed to be your friend. You don't seem to understand that.

Diane, we shoot and kill our enemies. We need to punish our own if they betray us, accordingly of course...

PENECTOMIES for RAPISTS! That is "accordingly" enough for me. Rape in ancient times was punished by death. Of course, women were more respected then...

Scott Henrie & Stef..I can't pick up your finished remarks. My perp was a grief councilor…how is that for an SOB-MFing Bstrd? I managed to be marginal at passing one of the better schools in the Army, decided to go for another school. fortunately I was older and had male friends who advised me not to go to the post MPs w/it. They knwe the score. I knew how it was treated in the civilain world. I had been a Social Worker/Welfare Examiner. one of my friends was an attorney and I found...

The woman was at fault and the men brought in other buddies to make them selves look good and the women look bad.

Blatant disrespect of women! I have the deepest love and respect for our military and this tarnishes it in my eyes! Please do something to stop this NOW!

I really adore your determination and thought.But this is only possible when you guys come up and initiate the group for the true respect of women. Make that group so wide that males like those never ever dare to do with anybody.I'll be happy to be the first member of that group.

Dear Clarissa, I refuse to believe this is a larger statistical issue than it is in the civilian world, especially with college kids, e.g., the numbers of date rapes. I hope you are wrong because I still believe in "Death Before Dishonor!", as does a huge majority of our heroes!

Suresh, you have to make sure you do it to he right person. I was accused of this when I had never seen the girl outside of school...or talked to her or been close to her for that matter. Next year I was sexually assaulted...and no one did a damn thing since I am a guy *rolleyes*
