As a young man about to enter the Marine Corps at the height of the Vietnam War living in Hawaii, I met a guy who was already in the Corps. He invited me to his home to talk about life in the Marine Corps. During our talk he physically assaulted me by saying that a certain physical exam was required, then he began by injecting a device up my ass with some device. I’ve NEVER told anyone of this before and I’ve been married, divorced and had numerous relationships with other women. I’m a straight 66 year old male who has felt shame, embarrassment & many other emotions as a result of this. Thank you for providing a platform where one can express what occurs to so many others.
Optional: What’s one way you think we can make public places safer for everyone?
By continuing to share that abuse of anyone by another is wrong & cannot be tolerated.
