An “Occupational Hazard”: Rape in the Military

Filed under: Bob Edwards Archives — Charlie Summers @ 1:00 pm

In conjunction with BobEdwardsRadio.com and our own BobEdwards.Info, over the next few weeks (ok, ok, that might have been painfully optimistic, but hey…) we’re going to post “the documentaries,” the special programs built to perform a deep-dive into a specific issue. Once they are posted here, the files will be made available to those two websites so they may update the existing links to the programs. It’s past-time these were available for those searching to hear them again.

In 2012 the program faced one of the toughest issues of the time; sexual assault in the Military. The series presents a portrait of the enduring culture in the military which protects criminals while creating a mental, physical and professional trap for the victims. We hear intimate details from servicemen and women and their families about how Military Sexual Trauma has been a destructive force in their lives. Advocates share stories and describe why this issue has become their passion. And the series notes that defending itself in civilian court in 2011, the Pentagon argued that sexual assault is an “occupational hazard” in the military.

This series, produced by Ariana Pekary, originally ran the week of July 30, 2012 in various segments throughout the week. I have edited these segments together, creating a single almost-three-hour audio file with the entire series. I have not included the week’s worth of scripts/roadmaps. You can read the series description, written by the producer.

This is not a program you will “enjoy” - it is frequently very difficult to hear. But this is a very important issue, with the obvious question arising, have things in our Armed Forces changed? I have no idea…another example where the loss of this program is a loss to us all.
