The Independent: The US Military’s Secret Sexual Assaults

The acts themselves usually didn’t take long. Michael Matthews had just left the “chow hall” on base when he was pinned to the ground by two men and sodomised by a third.

It’s dealing with what came after that took so much longer for these men – and three other male victims of sexual assault in the US military – who recently spoke out to The Independent.
