Female soldier harassed

This video from the USA says about itself:

Former Indiana National Guard Recruiter, Eric Vetesy, 39, pleaded guilty to ten charges of sexual battery, official misconduct and corrupt business influence last week. He admitted to groping and forcing sexual acts on as many as seven high school girls he recruited in Hamilton County. In exchange for the plea, a rape charge was dropped.

From British daily The Morning Star:

Harassed‘ soldier wins £7,000 payout

Thursday 18 February 2010

A female soldier has won £7,000 in damages after harassment from colleagues caused her to suffer a psychiatric illness.

Donna Rayment claimed that three officers tried to drive her out of the Honourable Artillery Company where she held the rank of lance sergeant until she was dismissed in June 2005 while on sick leave for stress.

She said that she would give the whole award to charity, including the war-wounded organisation Help for Heroes.
