The documentary Invisible War really opened my eyes. Before watching this film, I had no idea that rape in the military was even such a major issue. Now I see that it is a very serious problem that needs a solution soon. It is terrible that commanders ignore these complaints of some women just to protect each other. I also believe that it is a good idea to take away the decision for the cases from some commanders. They are too biased and with this movie as evidence that they do not take their job seriously or do what they are legally responsible to do. I feel badly for these women that had to experience something as awful as rape. Not only that, but they courageously told others what had happened despite the threats. They are trying to get the word out that rape in the military is a serious issue that needs to be resolved before more and more women join. I admire these women and hope that in the future they can make their voices heard and change the way the military runs in these cases.
