It is not just in recent years newspapers have carried headlines of those dishonoring the uniform by raping innocent civilians, fellow students at Academies, trainees, or fellow service members. Savage beatings, sodomy, rape, cruelty, mistreatment, and murder are just part of the headlines that reach all the way up to the top commanding officers and generals. When these heinous crimes are tolerated, unity and the very integrity of the services suffer. This historical account, Conduct Unbecoming, along with this author's own history will awaken a sleeping nation to how its women have continued to suffer in the Armed services.Follow this author through her expose of rape, torture, and corruption by her own military commanders, to her struggles with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and the "Kabuki dance" with the adversarial veterans administration of denials, cruelty, and retraumatization. She courageously fought evil and prevailed! A military culture that perpetuates Conduct Unbecoming causes a disconnect from the military's mission and those who would serve honorably. Allowing moral turpitude to go underground to the extent that it has, adversely affects good order and discipline and brings dishonor on the military organizations these men serve.This author refuses to be silenced for behavior that has continued nearly four decades unabated!...

This author lays it all out and tells how rape has been going on forty years in our military and commanders and Congress has covered it up. This authors experience and her subsequent fight with the VA is a real eye opener in light of recent hearings especially with the continued cover up of commanders, and their refusal to take this blight out of their chain of command. A must read for any concerned citizen who cares about our military's honor and the son's and daughters who would serve honorably. Congress and Pentagon's refusal to purge perpetrators such as these from their ranks shows the corruption that still reigns with power. This book Conduct Unbecoming tells a horror story about a Barbarian mindset in Commanders that has continued to live in our military and will bring shame on all of us if we don't wake up. This author proves Chain of Command is the problem and that victims are not safe in our military!
A very powerful story of rape in the military and the emotional trauma created by it. Many victims will be able to identify with the writer,.
I am a retired pastor with a Ph.D. and have done counseling with many women in abusive situations. I wish I had had had this book as a resource during my working years. It is very personal, and shows how this woman's faith helped her through the most difficult time in her life. It also reveals the cover-up we are seeing even today in the news of how women are assaulted and abused and raped in the military, and how the guilty parties go unpunished. This is a true account, and I commend the author highly for the courage she has shown to come forward and reveal yet another layer of cover-up in the military (actually several levels). I also recommend it as a pastor for counseling women in abusive situations or who have been raped, even it outside of the military. These women would still be suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
