The garrison has been part of a case study on army gender relations conducted by the Information Centre for Gender Research in Norway, and as a result the base is one of only a handful in the country where male and female soldiers sleep in the same bedrooms. The report has concluded that co-ed barracks facilitate "degenderisation", and 19-year-old Elina Schnell Hjelle from the south-western town of Kristiansund agreed that sharing with boys was not a problem. The small issues of putting on clean underwear was easily achieved by changing under the duvet. Officers at the base confirmed the report's claims that team moral in mixed-sex groups were up as a result of the sleeping arrangements. Private Mathias Hoegevold, 19, from the eastern town of Elverum, said that romantic relationships had not developed as a result of coed living, as they were all "just soldiers". The report also found that sexual harassment was down in mixed-gender barracks. Private Hjelle said there would always be some 'boys' talk' at the room, but nothing that she felt uncomfortable with. The Garrison of South Varanger has around 500 conscript soldiers, of which 15 are volunteer women. The base is located near the town of Kirkenes in Finnmark county, and its main duty is to guard the outer Schengen border Norway shares with Russia.

HIS FRIENDS URGED HIM TO GO SLEEP IT OFF ... AT AN APARTMENT OFFERED BY ANOTHER GUY IN THE BAR. NELSON LATER FINDS OUT HE WAS A NAVY SAILOR. SOUNDBITE (English) Greg Nelson, sexual assault victim: "He comes back with a glass of water and a little white pill. He says, Here take this, it's an Advil, a Motrin or whatever. You'll feel better in the morning." WHAT HAPPENED NEXT WAS A BIT OF A BLUR ... SOUNDBITE (English) Greg Nelson, sexual assault victim: "And so I lay down to try to go to sleep and he comes over. He touches my leg and says is it ok if I touch you? And I say no. And I black out at that point and I have moments of consciousness where I feel what's going on. And the best way to describe it is a vegetative state where you can feel this happening, you can hear what's going on but you can't speak, you can't see, you can't move.

MILITARY LEADERS ARE NOW TURNING FOR ADVICE TO JIM HOPPER _ AN EXPERT ON MALE SEXUAL ABUSE. SOUNDBITE (English) Dr. Jim Hopper, Harvard University psychologist: "... To come forward and tell someone that this has happened, it just completely flies in the face of how a man is supposed to be and men are rightly afraid of being judged as less of a man, let alone less of a soldier."

NELSON, WHO SERVED FOUR YEARS IN THE MARINE CORPS, OVERCAME HIS INITIAL RELUCTANCE TO REPORT HIS ASSAULT. SOUNDBITE (English) Greg Nelson, sexual assault victim: "The way that they handled it and the support that I received through my command is just outstanding. And I think it made recovering that much easier ..."

October 19, 2017 C-SPAN News http://MOXNews.com The Defense Advisory Committee investigating sexual assault in the armed forces held a public meeting. One of the speakers was a former U.S. Air Force senior airman who talked about being raped and beaten by an air force non-commissioned officer (NCO). She described her physical and mental injuries following the assault, and the lack of help she received from her commanding officers. The committee was created by Congress in 2016 to advise the Defense Secretary and congressional armed services committees on the investigation, prosecution and defense of allegations of sexual misconduct in the military. A committee established by Congress in 2016 to investigate sexual assaults in the military held its fourth public meeting. In this portion, members heard from representatives of each service branch on their expedited transfer polices for service members who report sexual misconduct. The 16-member Defense Advisory Committee is comprised of individuals with experience in the investigation, prosecution and defense of sexual assault allegations and is tasked with reporting its findings to the Secretary of Defense and the armed services committees of Congress. A group of military attorneys from the five armed service branches spoke at a forum examining sexual assault in the military. They discussed their experiences representing clients of sexual assault and their thoughts on improving the military's victims' counsel programs. This was part of a meeting of the Defense Advisory Committee that was created by Congress in 2016 to investigate and advise the Secretary of Defense and congressional armed services members on matters of sexual misconduct.

I guess I joined the army because of him, although I wasn't really in the mood to go to Afghanistan. And that's Pat. You better not call him a fag. Pat and I had been across the river neighbors for what seems like forever. Pat preferred playing with gas than playing with my toys. Okay, let's say he's a sexually frustrated pyromaniac. The thing was, he always pushed everything too hard, to be like one of the boys. And that's how Pat got suspended from his team back then. I was home on leave and I pushed him to hang out together. We'd been out in the world, away from our old ways of being easy with each other, so we hung out at my parent's yard. I told him about my nightmares, the typical ones before a mission. Explosion, my potential death and the visions that follow. I asked him if he was sad that I'd soon be sent away. He answered. - You're fucked up. - It hurt me because it's true. I am fucked up. There was a time when we used to train together. He was the only one able to put up with me. I assume I must have been a pain to be with, you know, with my ups and downs. I was scared to die in Afghanistan, so I asked Pat to drive over my leg. It needed to pass for an accident. At the very moment I thought he was gonna do it, he looks at me and says. - I'm leaving. - [Narrator] God knows I'm 100% straight, but maybe it would've been easier to be like Pat. Maybe it would've been simpler. My dream was to find a wife, have a home full of kids. I saw myself taking over my parents' house one day, when they took off to go traveling the world.

A new sex scandal hits the US Army. A number of young female soldiers have been forced into having sex with superior officers at a Texas military base. Details of the scandal emerged at a court martial session held to investigate allegations of sex abuse against cash-strapped privates at Fort Hood base. Several victims gave testimonies that they were pressured to join a prostitution ring set up by two veteran sergeants. One of the officers named Brag Grimes has denied charges and refused to testify against his comrade. Cases of sexual assault and harassment have been on the rise in the American army. A recent report shows the US department of defense received 50 percent more sex abuse complaints during a nine-month period in 2012 than a year before.

Trauma in the military can be caused by the severe psychological toll or, as new evidence suggests, by the exposure to blasts. However, there is a specific kind of trauma that can compound the stress of being in the combat zone. It’s military sexual trauma, experienced by both men and women. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, 55 percent of women and 38 percent of men using the VA health care system say they experienced sexual harassment while in the military. Sabrina, a member of the U.S. Army for 16 years, shares her battle with trauma in her own words.

According to an anonymous survey released last week by the Pentagon, nearly 1 percent of males in the U.S. military said they had experienced unwanted sexual contact, compared to 4.3 percent of women. That equates to about 10,500 men and 8,500 women. Yet only 14 percent of assaults reported last year involved male victims. Afraid to be seen as victims or as weak or gay, men in the hyper-masculine military culture often don't feel comfortable reaching out for help or reporting sexual assaults. Over the past year, though, the services have increased efforts to reach out to male victims, urging them to come forward so they can receive treatment and so officials can go after perpetrators. http://hosted2.ap.org/APDEFAULT/3d281c11a96b4ad082fe88aa0db04305/Article_2014-12-08-US--Military%20Sexual%20Assault-Male%20Victims/id-4b4c826c69114f9692ac33f1a782366c http://www.wochit.com

You’ve probably heard scary stories about the lives of the 25 million people in the reclusive and isolated nation of North Korea. If things are so rough for ordinary people, imagine how hard it must be for those serving in the military! Let’s see what it’s like to be a soldier in the North Korean army. Terrible nutrition, uniforms that injure soldiers, no way to escape and even worse conditions for women who suffer emotionally and physically - things get really tough and even more horrible you could imagine. TIMESTAMPS North Korea has compulsory military service for everyone. 0:52 Their paramilitary force includes teenagers. 1:57 The nutrition is so terrible that many soldiers can barely walk. 2:53 The uniforms injure the soldiers. 4:20 Things are even worse for female soldiers. 4:58 They have to throw landmines into the Yellow Sea. 6:20 Soldiers are brainwashed. 7:10 The military hospitals are dangerous. 8:08 Soldiers’ personalities change. 8:58 There’s no way to escape. 9:43 North Korea has the same number of submarines as the US. 10:40 They spent almost half of their budget on the army. 11:18 Music: Birds https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music Preview photo credit: In this Saturday, May 17, 2014 photo, families of victims of an accident at an apartment construction site in Pyongyang, North Korea grieve during a gathering in the capital where senior officials apologized and took responsibility. The word of the collapse in the secretive nation's capital was reported Sunday morning by the North's official Korean Central News Agency, which gave no death toll but said that the accident was "serious" and upset North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Un: By Jon Chol Jin/Associated Press/FOTOLINK/EAST NEWS, https://www.eastnews.ru/pictures/picture/id/29895074/i/0/t/0 Animation is created by Bright Side. SUMMARY -Every man must serve his country for 10 years, and every woman must serve for 7. Guys lucky enough to get into university and get a bachelor’s degree are allowed to serve for 5 years after graduation. -The Worker-Peasant Red Guards has somewhere between 1.5 and 6 million reservists. There are also teenage soldiers. -North Korean soldiers go through hard military training on raw corn kernels or a few potatoes a day. Many soldiers pass away from hunger and related health conditions. -According to former soldiers, the boots they wear in cold winter months are thin and stuffed with cotton for reasons of economy. -During their 7 years of compulsory military service, many women fall victim to sexual violence or humiliation. -Kim Jong-un forced his army to throw landmines into the Yellow Sea, which would resurface in South Korea and kill locals and tourists. -If some North Korean soldiers refuse to support violence, their army commanders are working to change that. They spend about 60% of their time learning the “right” ideology. -When interviewed, former soldiers described how they had to pay for their treatment, and, even when they did, all they got was alcohol rubbed on them. -Personalities often shift so greatly that there’s nothing that can bring things back to normal. -Kim Jong-un doesn’t approve of defection, especially when soldiers try to flee the country. Running away abroad often seems like the only route to safety. -The US has around 72 submarines, and North Korea has somewhere between 70 and 75. -Official government reports say 15.8%, but many experts agree it must be at least 38%.

The #MeToo movement has swept through industry after industry since it went viral last October, toppling high-profile individuals by exposing their sexual misconduct. But advocates and survivors say the nation’s largest employer — the U.S. military — has yet to see meaningful reform. On April 30, the Department of Defense reported a 10 percent rise in sexual assault reports from October 2016 to September 2017, across all branches. The Pentagon attributes the rise to a growing confidence in the military justice system, but some advocates, survivors, and policymakers are skeptical, considering the report also notes that of the 5,110 reports of sexual assault in 2017, just 166 lead to a conviction in 2017. VICE News spoke with retired Staff Sgt. Merci McKinley about her own experience with sexual assault, as well as Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, who has been pushing for legislative reform to the military justice system for years.

Stacey Thompson was proud to be a woman in the Marines. But after she reported being sexually assaulted by her sergeant she was given an "other than honorable" discharge that left her without military benefits. Struggling with PTSD, Stacey waged a decade-long battle to regain her health and military honors. The military eventually acknowledged its mistake and upgraded her discharge. Mosaic art and writing help Stacey work through her PTSD and share her experience with civilians. Now, she and her husband, also a Marine veteran, are proud of the life they have built through their journey to heal. This is a video from VETERANS COMING HOME, an innovative public media project exploring the lives of post-9/11 veterans, the divide between them and their communities, and the stereotypes that veterans and civilians hold about each other. Why does this divide exist? How does it affect communities across the country? And why does it matter?

Watch the full interview with Anu Bhagwati on Democracy Now! at http://owl.li/kPkpl. A shocking new report by the Pentagon has found that 70 sexual assaults may be taking place within the U.S. military every day. The report estimates there were 26,000 sex crimes committed in 2012, a jump of 37 percent since 2010. It is suspected this is only a fraction of the actual number of cases. Anu Bhagwati, executive director and co-founder of Service Women's Action Network, discusses an overlooked aspect of military sexual assault: male victims account for more than half of reported incidents. "There is a sense that because women are in the military inevitably they'll be sexually assaulted," Bhagwati says. "Men don't perceive themselves as victims, women are a little more acclimated. But we've got [to have] a culture change in the military if we want to transform that. We have to address the ideas of gender, and what it means to be a sexual predator. These are crimes based on power and control." Democracy Now! is an independent global news hour that airs weekdays on 1,100+ TV and radio stations Monday through Friday.

http://www.democracynow.org - A shocking new report by the Pentagon has found that 70 sexual assaults may be taking place within the U.S. military every day. The report estimates there were 26,000 sex crimes committed in 2012, a jump of 37 percent since 2010. Most of the incidents were never reported. The findings were released two days after the head of the Air Force's sexual assault prevention unit, Lt. Col. Jeffrey Krusinski, was arrested for sexual assault. We air highlights from Tuesday's Senate Armed Services Committee hearing on military sexual assault and speak with Anu Bhagwati, executive director and co-founder of Service Women's Action Network. "The numbers are outrageous and I think we've reached a tipping point," Bhagwati says. "The American public is furious."

The Chinese government is releasing previously unseen videos documenting the suffering of women forced into sex slavery by the Japanese military during World War Two. They include not only horrific descriptions of human rights violations against the women， but also some unspeakable atrocities. Sohn Jung－in has more. Since Saturday， China′s State Archives Administration has been releasing a video series each day about Japan′s abuse of women during World War Two. The first video released on August 15th，.. exactly 70 years after Japan surrendered in 1945， includes descriptions of the horrors the so－called ″comfort women″ went through and where they were imprisoned. It′s then followed by testimony from a Japanese soldier named Tsuyoshi Ebato who recalls how a Chinese woman was killed and eaten by Japanese soldiers during the invasion of the Shangdong peninsula. The soldier recalls how a Japanese sergeant killed the woman who was forced to become a sex slave. And since food was scarce at the time， he ate her flesh and shared it with his squadron after telling them it was regular meat. The second in the series， released on Sunday， reveals how Japanese intelligence personnel reported to their higher ups on the operation of brothels in Chinese cities. The document includes evidence that 141 women were forced to serve some 25－thousand Japanese troops stationed in Nanjing. The Chinese archives administration says it′s an undeniable historical fact the Japanese military systematically kidnapped women and operated brothels in their military bases. However， Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe′s statement last Friday to mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War Two made no direct reference to the issue. The administration says it′s releasing confessions of Japan′s wartime atrocities for eight days， in the hope such evil acts are never repeated. Sohn Jung－in， Arirang News.
