"Dealing with really difficult things for a very long time up to and including possibly taking your life we would not have policy that makes allowances for endless war we would be more careful about how we how you're thinking about these people and what we're putting them up against and another wrinkle in terms of why you might see women service members taking their own lives sooner after returning from service is the huge huge epidemic of sexual assault and trauma in the military that often goes without any kind of justice of any kind exactly in fact this past may there was a new report released from the dod showing that showing i would say mixed results when it came to assaults in the military and the epidemic that is women veterans being assaulted and raped without having any recourse to real justice in the system the report found that the number of service members reporting cases of sexual assault in 2016 went up to six thousand one hundred and two compared to the year prior at six thousand eighty two all of which was a huge increase almost two hundred percent increase from twenty twelve when only thirty six hundred or so cases were reported what was really weird was to see the dod kind of doublespeak on this they were saying the fact that more women are reporting sexual assault shows that there's increased trust in the system and isn't that great it was like of real ministry of doublespeak moment because i read that in scratch my head reading some of the quotes from the administration saying how great that was buds what they said was quote and this is elizabeth van winkle the assistant secretary defense at a press conference says we see the increase in rates of reporting as an indicator of continued trust in our response and support systems but thank god for senator kerstin jilib rand who said in a statement the truth is that the scores of sexual assault in the military will remain status quo today's report disappointingly shows a flat overall reporting rate just true there's barely any increase.
