“As a military spouse, I had nowhere to turn when my husband was brutally attacked by his Commander, on base. After contacting the NMSAO, I found support with their members giving me helpful information to assist my husband during this difficult time. Because of the support and information we received, we were able to get my husband the help that he needed to fight this assault within the military. We were horrified when his assault was swept under the carpet at first. He was the victim and attacked while his back was turned with several witnesses coming forward. I am thankful to the NMSAO for your support in helping me, my husband, and our family.”
Do you know that Military Spouses and Children serve our nation as much as the Servicemember?
Do you know how many times the Military Spouses suffer and sacrifice through each relocation and deployment while serving the military, family, community,
faith based organizations, schools, at each new duty station?
Do you know how many service members suffer from Mental Illness caused by relocations, deployments to War Zones resulting in Domestic Violence? Do you know that Mental Health Evaluations are optional and not mandatory for service members returning from war zones?
Can you guess how I am going to grow up healthy after what I witness?
Do you know how many times I have
abuse and abandonment?
Do you really know how many Military
are actually ABANDONED every day?
This is finally exposed! So you can only imagine the number of unreported and unrecorded Domestic Abuse cases towards the Military Spouses and Children!
“The lack of attention paid to domestic violence reporting is alarming. An estimated 1 in 3 American civilian women (33 percent) endure intimate partner violence during their lifetime, according to data from the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. VA statistics indicate similarly that 36% of female active-duty service members experienced domestic violence, a number that’s likely low due to underreporting in the ranks; for female veterans, it’s as high as 70%, per the VA.”
