Military sexual assault numbers are shocking

Last week, I sat down with Yvette McClelland, a veteran who served in the Air Force for a decade. She worked as a telecommunications maintenance specialist. Her time in the military was fraught with sexism, harassment and assault. McClelland was raped three times by fellow service members, she says.

Many years later, she’s still working on handling the fallout. As part of an effort to draw attention to this systemic problem, she’s brought a movie to town. The Invisible War will screen at Guild Cinema today at 4, 6 and 8 p.m. and tomorrow at 12:30 p.m.

18 veterans commit suicide each day

That’s the startling opener to Alex Limkin’s column “Flashes of Light,” which is all about staying alive after war.

Limkin, an Iraq War veteran, took a trip with Outward Bound. The wilderness organization leads vets through the backcountry for free. It’s part of an effort to help people cope with post-traumatic stress.

Flashes of Light

Staying alive after war

An average of 18 veterans commit suicide each day. The source for this statistic is not some obscure group with an anti-war agenda but an organization that probably knows something about the rate at which veterans are killing themselvesthe U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Rowdy’s Dream Blog #218: How to install a wing stabilizer.

I am to learn from an expert marine how to install a wing stabilizer. It is a long piece of soft metal: a hollow tube with rounded yet squared corners, tapered on the ends like a cigar. It has mounting bolt holes. He begins the lesson. I run to my room to get some paper so I can take notes. The mice have shredded the paper on my nightstand. Exasperated, I grab the commix page. I see that I can take a short cut back by going behind the school over the golf course. I meet a group of oldies hitting small brown balls up the hill toward the school. I join them with my club. The going is slow: there are so many balls.

Marine walks across the country barefoot

Today is day 220 of Ron Zalski’s journey across the country. Without shoes, he’s traveled about 2,000 miles. He has another 1,000 to go.

Zaleski is 58 and a grandfather. He left Massachusetts in June. His long journey is intended to bring attention to the high suicide rate of veterans, particularly those who come home from Iraq and Afghanistan. He’s been wearing a sandwich board as he walks alongside America’s roadways. It says “18 vets a day commit suicide.”

70 percent of the military is cool with ending DADT

This afternoon, the Pentagon released a study showing that most servicemembers are fine with allowing gays and lesbians to serve openly. About 70 percent of the military said repealing Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell would have a positive effect, a mixed effect or no effect at all.

A poll earlier this month revealed that 58 percent of Americans support an end to the rule, too. President Obama says, “With our nation at war and so many Americans serving on the front lines, our troops and their families deserve the certainty that can only come when an act of Congress ends this discriminatory policy once and for all.”
