I was raped.
It happened when I was in the Navy. A group of three or four threw a blanket over me pinned me down and used a mop handle. I never saw my attackers, had no idea who they were, but I got to spend the rest of my time at sea wondering if every face I saw on that ship was one of them.
No, I did not report it; it was 1972, and we were in combat. Reporting it would have probably made my life a thousand times worse.
It was more than twenty years before I told anybody.
ETA: While I was seeking treatment through the VA, one psychiatrist I saw said in his report that that I was probably fabricating, or at least embellishing the story because the experience of being anally raped had not made me gay. I was shocked, but not nearly as shocked as the director of that facility when I showed her the report.
So, that is the kind of stuff you have to deal with.
Some of "These people" are such scum I see no reason to believe this horseshit. But of course, they all do and not one of them (that I saw) even questions him in the least.
People like this are attention whores that need help.May the FORCE be with you!

Mops have handles? That had to hurt!

Where do you find posts like this? Anywho...quite unfortunate if it did happen. Umm...don't understand why they wouldn't have used their own *instruments* instead of a mop handle. That doesn't quite make sense. Everyone knows it's only gay to receive.

He is mad because he kept going back on his free time and no one showed up.

She is so full of crap it is running out of her ears. Those psychopaths will say anything on that board to get attention, and sympathy.
I love my God, my country, my flag, and my troops ....

While it is an attention grabber, 1972 was the tail end of Vietnam so yeah, some people were on ships in combat as we didn't pull out officially until 1973.
The last of the draft was early 1973 altho numbers were pulled for those born in 1954, 1955, and 1956...those numbers were never used.
As far as the mop handle...the attackers did not want to be seen as gay by doing it themselves...hence the mop handle.They that can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

You have a good point about the era involved, too. Today's military is a voluntary force, far more professional about it's policies and practices than perhaps it was in the Vietnam Era. Also, in that day, frequently young male criminals were given an option by the courts-the military or jail.
One of my second cousins served honorably in Vietnam, received a silver star. He was a sex offender, before and after his service, although I'm not sure if he was ever charged or convicted at any time in his life. I think a guy like him would be weeded out through the recruitment process, these days.
