The US Army Asked Twitter How Service Has Impacted People. The Answers Were Gut-Wrenching
After posting a video of a young recruit talking to the camera about how service allows him to better himself “as a man and a warrior”, the US Army tweeted, “How has serving impacted you?”
As of this writing, the post has over 5,300 responses. Most of them are heartbreaking.
“My daughter was raped while in the army,” said one responder. “They took her to the hospital where an all male staff tried to convince her to give the guy a break because it would ruin his life. She persisted. Wouldn’t back down. Did a tour in Iraq. Now suffers from PTSD.”
“I’ve had the same nightmare almost every night for the past 15 years,” said another.
The CT Peace and Solidarity Coalition formed as a result of a conference that was held at Middlesex Community College in November 2016. We came together to get different groups to work together, and to promote a vision of peace and justice which would appeal to people. ----- We meet monthly in Middletown
