VA helps military sexual trauma survivors
IRON MOUNTAIN, Mich. (WLUC) - April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month, and the VA stands with Veterans who have survived Military Sexual Trauma (MST).
MST is not a diagnosis but rather an experience. It is not only sexual assault but any sexual harassment that occurred during military service. MST affects all genders, ages, racial/ethnic backgrounds, sexual orientations, religious backgrounds, and physical sizes and strengths. It has been prevalent in all branches and eras of service.
