The Welfare of Those Serving is Responsibility of Us All
The true problem with all of these miliatary sexual assault cases is about justice as a whole in UCMJ as administered under some of the current leadership. We can't trust everyone at the helm of every ship, and those serving, and their families, have no control over what ship they are put on. I sincerely believe military justice under UCMJ is the business of every American, and we can demand and get fair and just treatment for all those serving, further, it is our sacred duty to accomplish the same.
"You never know how much you really believe anything until its truth of falsehood becomes a matter of life and death to YOU. It is easy to say you believe a rope to be strong and sound as long as you are merely using it to cord a box. But suppose you had to hang by that rope over a precipice. Wouldn't you then first discover how much you really trusted it?" C.S. Lewis.
This is a favorite quote of mine, from one of my favorite writers.
