I was sexually abused in the military and then was raped, After the experience I was submitted to The mental ward in the Army hospital, they spent 10 days to discharge me when I was not able to handle the events afterwards. During the process of outprocessing they said I had a personality disorder and denied me health benefite. Becasue of the discharge severity and the fact that the Va would not help me for 3 years fighting for help I became homless and lost everything I owned. My son was taken from me becasue I was considered unfit de to the severity of the discharge. I found out 2.5 yrs later that the whole time I had Military Sexual trama and Severe PTSD. I since then have been recieving help with the VA. I was rated a 50% disability rating, but my doctors have founded me to be unemployable. The military refused to fix my DD-214 and they still have not even applied any true help. I have another child since then and as of right now I am on the verge of loosing her. I have fought for 3 years + to get my son back but the military does not want to take responsibility for the series of events they were at faught for.
