Serving your country by joining the military is an honorable endeavor. Many positive opportunities are opened up to the individual; such as travel, education, training, and employment. A person can also enhance their personal characteristics of integrity, honor, dedication, perseverance, allegiance, and loyalty, to their country, their specific branch of service, their unit, and themselves. Unfortunately, many women and men leave the military with conflicting emotional and physical feelings about their “honorable endeavor,” as betrayal, disloyalty, pain, wounds, mistrust, and the list continues. The experiences, which these women and men have endured, are horrific, shocking, appalling, awful, repulsive and atrocious. Yet, most were not inflicted by some foreign enemy, but within the very ranks they served, by other military members; their brothers and/or sisters-in-arms.
