It is estimated that 19.5 million men and women have served in the U.S. military – the horrific truth is that many come home bearing not only the wounds of combat, but the emotional, physical and psychological effects of sexual assault they’ve suffered during their time of service to our country.

To speak more about this, we invite sexual assault advocate Jess Teresi, who will share more about why so many members of the military never report being a victim, as well as how non-military members can better support their loved ones who may have experienced some form of sexual assault.
