    harassed and abused in the military. I am married to a Navy retiree and I lived on base ofr 11 of those 15 years he was active duty during our marriage.  It felt like every month month there was another court martial for either harassment or rape--and the defense was always, "Who do you believe? This fine senior chief with 14 years in and an exemplary record and  evals that present him as near perfect--or these three disgruntled young woman who didn't like him and likely complained out of revenge?"  Most times, the defense worked and he walked.

    I taught college English at an AF base, and got to know several students well (after 3 semesters, you do). Several had been physically or sexually abused. For them boot camp was a piece of cake.  NOTHING could compare with the uncle who molested them or the father or mother who beat them.

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.
