because I am a victim of MST. I was held captive by my own shipmates and held hostage for 3 days and turned into a human toilet. they forgot to lock the cuffs one day and I escaped. I saw one of my defilers and he threatened to kill me(I was 18and I believed him) if I told. I told one Chief and he tried to get all eight men and the woman responsible arrested and prosecuted. Our CO refused because he was one of those people who believed women didn't belong in the military. so I have suffered for years. The Chief never made Senior Chief either.
