This morning an article in the New York Times says more than I will be able to say!

Read this first:

Then understand-I do not know what this means for those of us who suffer from PTSD and from our military experience…yet-our injury was not an honorable one-nor just as that which would happen in combat, we that are victim/survivors of MST are singled out…at least-not mentioned in this article. Combat related-yes. I cannot complain about that. But,it was combat I was sure to see when I enlisted-it was THE POINT! It was what I thought enlisting was about…not that I was going to be raped.

Hopefully it is good news for ALL!! They say this will be in effect as fast as Monday 7/12. Hopefully we can see myriad change from this decison….and hopefully our job here might be done!
