Everyone needs this in their life.
It’s official. My last day in the Army is July 4th, 2013. I just signed the paperwork today, and started my retirement paperwork.
I’ve just been scrolling through my hard drive and posting random pictures for the entirety of my blog.
There has to be a reason you all are following me…
I’m officially taking requests. Is there anything you all want to see?
Anonymous asked: Next week I go to swear in and this is what I've wanted my whole life, but everyone around me is telling me the Marines is no place for a woman and I will get sexually assaulted. I'm kinda iffy now about it :(
I won’t lie to you… the Department of Defense has officially listed rape as an “occupational hazard” for female service members. According to the last briefing I sat through, something like 33% of women in the armed forces have been sexually assaulted.
Sadly, that’s a 1:3 chance that you will be. It’s disgusting and vile, but it’s the unpopular truth. They’re trying frantically to address this problem, and it’s starting to get the attention it deserves… but it’s still a huge problem.
You will absolutely have to deal with jokes, advances, rumors, offers… and perhaps even rape. It’s the same with men. There have been even more men raped than women, it’s just not talked about.
Do you have any specific questions? You can come off Anon and talk about it.
Anonymous asked: are you still in the Army?
I’m currently stationed in Fort Knox, and I only have about a month left before retirement. So if you’re nearby, you should come off anon and go hiking or fishing or something. My roommate and I are always up to something.
Anonymous asked: You're really attractive. That said, why did you delete the kangaroo pictures?
I suspicious that you’re trolling me. *eyebrow raise*
And I took them down because I realized I looked like an enormous douchebag in them. <— Honest truth. I’m uneasy with putting personal stuff up. I always feel like I come across as stupid.
