Raped at Ft. Hood

I was 19 yrs old stationed with 157 QM Unit Ft. Hood Texas. I needed a ride somewhere the next day. I asked a group of guys sitting at a picnic table that I knew. I said I would give gas money. One of them asked me to follow him, and we could talk about the details. I followed him to his barracks room. He tried to kiss me. I pulled away. He told me I was beautiful. He then choked me and threw me to the ground. As he was raping me from behind, I was yelling for help and yelling stop. It was so painful that I then began praying in my head for him not to kill me until he finished. It was painful. When it was over, he tried to hug me and told me not to tell anyone. I ran out of the room, past the guys at the picnic table to my room. I took a shower and cried. The next day I walked to the police station. I told them what happened and they called my First Sergeant. She called me to her office and said this was all my fault for going into his room. I also told the Commander, but nothing was done.

  1. First of all, I compliment on your courage of telling your story. There are women veteran advocacy groups. If you live in California, you can look up on Facebook or website: California Statewide Collaborative for Military and Families. You might be referred to a local state organization. You are not alone. My USMC daughter was also an MST victim and now a survivor. I have saddened that your chain of command was not helpful. I had to call the Battalion’s Chaplain to explain the situation of my daughter. He was very supportive and helpful to her since we lived far away. He was able to guide and accompany her to appropriate authorities while on active duty.
