I was raped while on TDY. I was raped by an officer after sightseeing at night. He took me to a memorial that was about freedom, we talked about freedom. He took me back to the hotel room and took away my freedom. Back in Boston a Yeoman (YN1 Kori Heath) called me a whore while her best friend Lt Patricia Brady (now Patricia Tutalo) laughed and agreed. Kori Heath said that she has a brother in the military, I believe she said the Navy, and she said that it was a slap in the face for her brother and all men who are serving when we regret having sex and “cry rape”. She said she needs to protect her brother from falling victim from a “whore with regrets.” I reported them only for them to deny it. To protect themselves they said that I was threatening them. Two of them against me. I was told to not threaten them. I never threatened them.
My rapist was never prosecuted. I was discharged for bipolar disorder. A doctor confirmed that I do not have bipolar disorder.
I was a PO3 told to do a job that was not what I was trained for. I was okay with it and did whatever needed to be done for my country. My husband was in the Coast Guard as well and it was difficult for him to see what was happening to me and at the same time wanting to stay in and work with those that were abusing me.
Six years later a day does not pass by that tears do not roll down my eyes because of what happened to me. I read the stories on here and the same names and being published over and over again. How many more lives does Patricia Tutalo and Kori Heath have to ruin before they are sent to prison? How many more victims do they have? If you been abused by Patricia Tutalo or Kori Heath please tell someone. They can not get away with it.
