Military Sexual Trauma
Abstract
Since 2004, the United States government, in collaboration with other agencies have tried
to lay down measures that would reduce the Military Sexual Trauma (MST) in one way or the
other. In as much as MST has been described as an act that touches on various aspects, most of
the studies have centered on sexual assault, and on how the victims should be assisted in
Afghanistan or Iraq. Although efforts have been laid to try to ensure that there are solutions to
such problems, the United States of Veteran Affairs, through some psychologists have been
attempting to devise ways that would enable the victims to deal with MSTs. This paper seeks to
go into the details of the MST, to establish the concern that has been facing the United States
Armed forces for quite some years. In the current days, the United States Military allows the
MST victims to try to register their unrestricted or restricted sexual assault reports to the relevant
departments, which have been laid (Kelly, Skelton, Patel, & Bradley et al., 2011). However, it is
still critical to point out that most of the victims have always found it quite a difficult task to
report most of the incidences.
Introduction
Military Sexual Trauma (MST) is a term that has been used to refer to sexual assault that
is military-related or harassment that is repeatedly done to the victims. It is critical to note that
MST takes place in almost every branch of the military and the victims have mostly been
observed to be either male or female enlisted military officers (Hoyt, Klosterman, & Williams,
2011). The effects of MST do not only degrade the morale of the involved officers, but it is also
likely to compromise the individual’s health or even go as further as affecting his/her family in

one way or the other. Investigating and finding the underlying cause of this concern is quite
crucial, as it would help the ones involved to find means, which would help them solve the
matter. However, it has also been established that most of the victims are never free to report
such incidences whenever they take place. Mostly, it has been noted that the victims are likely to
suffer more as compared to the perpetrators, whenever such occurrences have been brought into
the light. This is one of the primary reasons as to why the perpetrators may never feel secure to
put into light their grievances after being attacked. The most important aspect of analyzing in this
is the Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PSTD) and how the military veterans are suffering from
this.
Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder in Military Service
Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PSTD) may take place when there is a life-threatening
event such as incidences of terrorism, natural disasters, military combats, violent assault such as
rape, and lastly, serious accidents that take place (Pavao, Turchik & Hyun et al., 2013). It has
been established that most of the victims are likely to survive the consequences after a while,
unlike those who develop stress reactions that may become worse as time goes by. Over a period
now, the United States military service has been battling out with victims of such heinous
activities who end up developing severe stress that may affect their lives. A majority of these
individuals who suffer from PSTDs are strict to be recommended for counseling to lower down
the levels of stress.
Military service officers that suffer from PSTD have also reported having nightmares,
difficulties when it comes to sleeping, flashbacks and sometimes, a feeling of emotional
numbness. Most of these symptoms are likely to impair an individual’s daily life in one way or

the other. To identify the PSTDs in individuals, one should try to look at the psychological and
physical symptoms such as depression, memory loss, cognition, abuse of substances, and health
complications. This complication has also been identified as one that is likely to bring about
difficulties in the social or family life of an individual, and even sometimes, it may be associated
with occupational instabilities ((Pavao, et al., 2013). It is also vital to note that most of the
victims of PSTD have been characterized by challenges such as family discord, marital
problems, and difficulties when it comes to parenting.
Non- Combat-Related PSTD
Considering the fact that PSTD is experienced as a result of witnessing events that may
cause trauma to an individual, it is critical to indicate that there are four major categories of
PSTDs, which include accidents amongst the service officers, military sexual trauma, a death of
a fellow soldier, and at times, physical assault. These are the main factors that are associated
with non-combat related PSTD.
Accidents that are characterized to be non-combat are prevalent in the contemporary
world and the field of the military. However, this is not common in the United States, but it
could be seen in most of the developing countries (Valente & Wight, 2007). Even though the
accident occurred when the veteran was on duty, within the base or on leave, one thing remains
that the effects of this may lead to PSTD. Sometimes, the veterans may be exposed to scenes of
serious accidents whereby the victims threatening injuries may leave memories to the soldiers.
On the other hand, such effects may be worse when the veterans witnessed the death of either a
colleague or a friend.
