The real crime here is that this movie is based on a true story. I first heard this one in 1978. However, women have been in the American Armed Forces, and facing the rape issue since WWII and probably since Molly Pitcher. But the one I heard about in '78 was a noble soul who reasoned that if she made a big deal out of it, which "they" were expecting her to, "they" would use it as an excuse to keep women out of Military academies and positions from then on. You decide if it made any difference in the long run. Does anyone think rape doesn't still happen in the military? This movie goes AWOL, gets real weird, lands way off target in my opinion. The actual soldier woman gets less screen time than anyone else, how ironic is that? What a gyp. She sounds to me like the female version of Jesus, if she did what she did for the reason I was told she did, by a source in the know. She deserves a better salute than this. Let's hope someone approaches the subject again, but attempts to breathe some actual life into the soldier woman who took rape in stride, because that is what the military is STILL asking rape survivors to do, I hope you know.
