MeToo when you wear the uniform – Sexual assault in the military – Ep 4.0

Ep 4 is here.  Hope you enjoy it.

I did want to make a note for people about SGT Johnson, the SF soldier who died in Niger back in October.  I said his name a number of times in this episode and I’m pretty sure most of them were SGT La Johnson.  His name is SGT La David Johnson and I apologize for not saying his name correctly.  I have memory issues and sometimes things don’t get out quite right.  But, a person’s name is an important thing and I aim to do it right.
