The MCAS Miramar Marine Base held the very first Rape Walk

On Friday, April 26th, 2013, a historical military event took place in San Diego.  The MCAS Miramar Marine Base held the very first Rape Walk to bring awareness and speak out about Military Sexual Assault.  Mayor Bob Filner spoke and the City of San Diego declared April 26th, 2013 Military Sexual Assault Day.  Also speaking was Tara Jones, a navy veteran and Founder of the National Military Women Veterans Association of America that addresses this issue amongst women veterans who are returning to civilian life dealing with military sexual trauma.  The Association has a Facebook Page.  There are 19,000 sexual assaults taking place in the military every year.  It is an extremely important issue.  It has taken great courage and strength for these veterans to come forward.

If you wish to view the video, I have put all the Video up on my YouTube Account of Susqul414.
