Jael, friend of a rape survivor of the United States Coast Guard
Update: September 15, 2011
Thank you all for your help. My friend is finally getting counseling that she needs and is doing much better. Some of the name calling is still going on but for the most part it stopped after so much attention was brought to this case. We are hoping for a fair and thorough investigation. We’ll keep you updated as we find out more.

My friend was recently raped in the Coast Guard. Everyone is laughing at her and telling her that she deserved to be raped. She is thinking of dropping all charges because of how badly she been treated. I read every single story on here and I feel that they do this on purpose so victims don’t pursuit the allegations. The rapist told everyone that she is crazy and cried raped.
The Coast Guard can be so cruel. This is the Coast Guard that we are suppose to respect? I never served and after this I plan on never serving.
