Military Rape compared to Penn State
In 2011 a scandal broke at Penn State. The alleged sexual
assault of young boys over several years by a former Penn
State Assistant Coach hit the national media.
The late great Joe Paterno ended up being the fall guy for
the scandal, and all because he did his job and reported the
Our question is what happened to the Sgt. Maj. that
blatantly broke both military and federal law and ignored
the rape of our friend? Shouldn’t he be dishonorably

including our friends rapist, or will people ignore her rape
and the other victims of the military and Marines?
