To serve in the US Marines is both an honor and privilege for men and women. There should be utmost respect for every individual therein within military manoeuvres and ceremonies.

this was a powerful and sad documentary about how some women were sexually abused while serving our country. these wrongs were compounded by the system in place in the military that does not know how to handle these crimes.
military justice is to justice as military music is to music.

I AM A U S NAVY VET WHO SERVED IN THE 1950'S. I NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH SEXUAL ASSAULT. WE HAD NO WOMEN ON OUR SHIP AT THAT TIME. I WAS SO DISTRAUGHT AFTER WATCHING THIS DOCUMENTARY.
THESE COMMANDERS WANTTO PROTECT THEIR CAREERS AND PROMOTIONS SO THEY DO NOTHING TO PROTECT THESE WOMEN AND MEN. I WILL NO LONGER LOOK ON THE UNIFORMS WITH PRIDE. THE MILITARY IS A HAVEN FOR RAPISTS AND HETERO SEXUAL MALES WHO PREY ON MALE/FEMALE SOLDIERS , AIRMEN, AND SAILORS. IF YOU KNOW OF ANY WOMAN WHO WANT'S TO JOIN THE MILITARY FOR COLLEGE BENEFITS, AND EXPERIENCE HAVE THEM WATCH THIS DVD. I AM SO ASHAMED OF OUR MILTARY AND CONGRESS CAN'T AND WON'T PUT THESE PREDATORS AND COMMANDERS IN THE STOCKADE /AND OR BRIG..THE MILITARY IS AS CORRUPT AS CONGRESS.

How bloody sad! SHAME!!!!!! I cried my eyes out. These women have more guts than any sitting politician. This isn't how to win wars. This only sets us all back decades. I will never be able to stand for the National Anthem ever again. Be sure to check out the Special Features; they have a retreat for these women at Whidby Island.

EXCELLENT documentary treated with the sensitivity the subject deserves.

"Our" military, "their" military... hmmm. When I thought about this, I remembered the women who've come forward to complain about the treatment they received from their male colleagues at "our" RCMP.

I figure it beggars belief that "our" male soldiers have a greater sense of cultural sensitivity, gender awareness (and plain old right and wrong) than "their" male soldiers. Just pure logic, given the fact all three of the organizations I'm speaking of belong to the same testosterone drenched school of thought. And anyone is likely to experience much the same thinking in all 3 arenas. There would be a difference in scope however, based on the relative size of each organization.

The stories of the victims in this documentary are very disturbing. It's worth watching, though. It's important to be aware of the problems in our military.

Everyone should watch this, especially if you know a young woman who wants to go into the military. The treatment of these survivors is completely dishonorable and violates everything our military supposedly stands for today.
