Military and Veteran Survivors

Military Sexual Trauma

“Military sexual trauma” (MST) refers to sexual assault or harassment experienced during military service. MST includes any sexual activity that someone was involved with against their will.

 

The Veteran's Affairs Center in Cheyenne offers assistance to veterans who are survivors of MST.

Active duty military looking for DOD or military specific support and information can contact the Safe Helpline.

The Battered Women's Justice Project also has information and resources for survivors of MST.


Intimate Partner Violence

 


The Invisible War Documentary

The Invisible War is a groundbreaking investigative documentary about one of America’s most shameful and best kept secrets: the epidemic of rape within the U.S. military. The film paints a startling picture of the extent of the problem — today, a female soldier in combat zones is more likely to be raped by a fellow soldier than killed by enemy fire. The Department of Defense estimates there were a staggering 22,800 violent sex crimes in the military in 2011. Among all active-duty female soldiers, 20 percent are sexually assaulted. Female soldiers aged 18 to 21 accounted for more than half of the victims.
