The sick truth is that about 1 in every 100 guys experience military sexual trauma, for women it’s 1 in 4.
In Virginia and North Carolina our sisters are waiting an average of about 26 days to see mental health docs.
26 days is a long time to hang off the edge of cliff which is where to many of our brothers sisters hang waiting for VA.
Not surprisingly women get the short of end of the stick, again. Women have unique needs mammograms and gyn care to name a few. They say how great things are and you would think VA should be filled with highly qualified doctors using state of the art equipment and techniques, wait times should be short and veterans should be well served.
