Stacey Thompson was proud to be a woman in the Marines. But after she reported being sexually assaulted by her sergeant she was given an “other than honorable” discharge that left her without military benefits. Struggling with PTSD, Stacey waged a decade-long battle to regain her health and military honors. The military eventually acknowledged its mistake and upgraded her discharge. Mosaic art and writing help Stacey work through her PTSD and share her experience with civilians.
De Telegraaf is a right-wing Dutch daily. Usually, they are pro-militarist.
Eg, on today’s front page they are happy that the new right-wing Dutch government plans to spend even more on
wars … sorry, I should use the euphemism ‘defence’ … than they already intended. Obedience to the United States Trump administration and NATO.
However, on page 3 of that same Telegraaf of today is an article which makes one doubt whether so much should be spent on wars and armed forces fighting them.

Eg, he was forced to wear a ‘funny’ ‘Chinese’ hat. Then, he was ordered to speak Chinese. ‘I do not speak that language’. ‘Of course you do! Ching chong Chinaman! Ching chong Chinaman!’
