Given that rape is an assault upon a fellow soldier and there are all kinds of reasons - not the least of which is combat efficiency - to land on those who attack their own with jump boots, I would certainly HOPE that "handled better" is the least of it.

Sad but true, A friend who was a former soldier during the first Iraq war told me how a friend her's was ganged raped by soldiers and suffered a nervous breakdown. She also said they were more afraid of their combat buddies than the Iraq soldiers or the Ieds. Very sad


Thank you for sharing your information. Pretty interesting dude
