    • Trina McDonald

      We hear a number of stories about the bravery and struggles of military personnel. However, one underreported story is the sexual assault among military personnel. Today we’ll hear Trina McDonald’s tale of sexual assault while serving her country and how the greatest danger she faced came from her fellow servicemen. Trina is one of the servicewomen whose story is told in the documentary The Invisible War, which reports on the incidence of sexual assault in the U.S. military.
