Veteran Voice is a weekly publication designed to provide information to and about veterans to veterans and to the broader community. Veterans are an integral part of their Florida communities, which currently have individual organizations of their own, such as the Veterans of Foreign Wars, the American Legion, the Vietnam Veterans of America and many other groups with a narrow focus, but no convenient way to connect to a wider population of veterans and to the community in general within a limited geographic area, their community. The mission of Veteran Voice is to publish a weekly source of information that will provide, in one place, a listing of resources available to veterans, articles about changes in policies or organizations affecting veterans and events of interest to veterans as well as articles about veterans of interest to the general public. Veteran Voice LLC is organized as a partnership of experienced newspaper executives with an interest in veterans and in the communities of Florida veterans and friends. Veteran Voice is a start-up intended to address a perceived lack of information readily available to veterans on programs and policies affecting them and objective reporting of veteran affairs to the public. To our knowledge, and based on comments from lead ers of local veterans organizations, there was no media or website currently meeting this need until the launch of Veteran Voice. We hope you agree, and will support this publica tion with your subscription. Without subscriptions there will be a limited number of people we can help, without which this mission will not be realized. As part of our commitment to supporting local veteran communities, readers and subscribers.

VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE DECEMBER 13, 2013 5On Oct. 27, 1990, the Los Angeles Times had a small blurb about those small, easy-to-miss stories that belied its importance. Liesegang aims to help end any more silence. The Silent No More Foundation opened a Facebook page about a month ago. The founders, Tricia LaBar and Liesegang, are working to create a toll-free number for military members to be able to call and report sexual harass ment and assaults to people, preferably veterans, not beholden to any chain of command. So somebody outside the mili tary knows about it, LaBar said in a phone interview. That way they cant sweep it under the rug. That 1990 newspaper blurb read, A 19-year-old naval recruit who fell 75 feet from Sunset Cliffs was in serious condition at UC police said recruit attached to the submarine walking along the cliffs with a friend in the 4500 block of Ladera Street about 10 p.m. Thursday when she fell and landed on the beach below, police said. That was the story. Liesegang was walking with a friend and she fell. When she woke from a coma, the sailor had another far more chilling tale that wouldnt make the Los Angeles Times, or any other paper. I walked off base to mail a let ter, she said in a recent Veteran Voice interview. When I walked back on base I got a ride with this young fellow, and we were talking for a little while. He was drinking, but seemed pleasant enough to spend a bit of time with. Until she wanted to leave. Thats when Liesegang says Patrick McCallisterFOR VETERAN VOICEpatrick.mccallister@yahoo.com writer and speak er Wayne Dyer. sexually assaulted her to tell the story number manned by members to report military sexual trauma.

VETERAN VOICE THE VOICE OF EXPERIENCE DECEMBER 13, 2013 7 Lloyd Johnson said he wanted to hire a veteran from the get go. I had heard the advertisement on the radio about hiring vets, he said. I said, Thats a good idea. Workforce Solutions is a that helps job seekers and employers in Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin and Okeechobee counties. ment boards in the state. It has a veterans room at its St. Lucie Blvd., and other veterans pro grams. Tabar said the local employ ment picture has been getting brighter for veterans lately for several reasons. He said there have been several national and state initiatives in the public and private sectors that have raised awareness among large and small businesses about hiring veterans, such as the radio ad Johnson mentioned. Additionally, Tabar said Workforce has cultivated more relationships with local em ployers, and word is spreading. Thats the big thing Im seeing employers, theyre engaging us, Tabar said. Its not just us going out there beating the pavement (to talk to employers). Theyre calling us and saying, I want to hire a vet. Gov. Rick Scott, a Navy veteran, declared November as Hire a Veteran Month throughout the state to build on veterans-em ployment momentum. Jessica Sims, press secretary at the Opportunity, said at least about 25,000 veterans have found work through the departments efforts this year. The State Veterans Employment Program also assisted Regional Workforce Boards with the place ment of more than 600 veterans, on average, each week during 2013, totaling 25,459 employed veterans since January 1, 2013, she said in an email response to queries. One reason veterans employment is improving is because the job market is better. On Friday, nomic Opportunity released its state employment report for Octo ber. The department was unable to produce an employment report the previous month, because of the 18-day federal government shutdown. The states October (unemployment) rate was the lowest since August 2008 when it was also 6.7 percent, the report reads. And only one county had dou ble-digit unemployment: Hend ry. The national unemployment rate in October was 7.3 percent, seasonally adjusted. Florida has been below the national average for eight straight months. Theres wide disagreement about what the veterans unemployment rate is. Whats not disputed is that veterans particularly young veterans are more likely to be unemployed, or underemployed, than their non-veteran counterparts. Federal labor statisticians generally put veter ans unemployment at about 10 percent. However, the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, and some other veterans organizations, hold that its closer to 15 percent. So, why the high unemployment? Numerous reasons are cited for veterans unemployment. Whats generally at the center of those explanations are the all-import ant resume and interview. A lot of veterans cant trans late their skills into the civilian world, Tabar said in a previous interview. They dont realize in the outside world, you get paid for those skills. In short, many veterans are in ept at speaking civilian job skills. Conversely, a number of hiring managers dont speak military. In other words, they dont understand how military experiences translate to job skills. To bridge that divide, veterans advocates such as Bob Ravener, president and the chief people launched employment fair series. Earlier this year, Ravener worked with Scott to declare May 10 as Florida departments of Economic Opportunity and Veterans Affairs teamed up with about 120 employers to host Paychecks for Patriots veterans hiring fairs at 10 locations. The one-day event was attended by more than 1,500 veterans and more than 200 employers, Sims said. Since the May event, 472 veterans have been placed in a job that was advertised at the event.

Liesegang was becoming the latest victim of whats now called military sexual trauma irresist ible pressure to have unwanted sex, or an outright sexual as sault. sciousness. He was choking me, Liesegang said. My guess is he thought I was dead and he threw me off the cliff. The fall, the choking, or both broke her neck, leaving Liesegang an incomplete quadriplegic. She wanted justice. She wanted her attacker arrested and tried. What she got instead, Liesegang said, the military. They told me, We know its foul play, but if you take it to court youre going to lose and get nothing. I was given a choice of getting 100-percent service-connected (disability rating), or go to court and lose. Veterans Chapter 113, Port St. Lucie, said. Carlsen is a veterans ment of Veterans Affairs. If shed been drinking that night, they could have found (her injury) willful misconduct, and given her nothing, Carlesen said. nancial and medical support. She took the deal and didnt press for an arrest or prosecution. Liesegang said her attacker later kidnapped a woman, according to news reports she found online. He died a few years ago, so she asked not to name him. Liesegang said that since nationally-known author and speaker tunity to tell the story publicly, numerous women have told her about getting silencing threats af ter reporting sexual pressure and assaults in the military. Plenty of them, she said. I ha vent run into very many women who havent been assaulted in the military. Everyone is scared to talk about it. Everyone feels theyre alone. Since the 1990s the VA has regularly screened its patients for military sexual trauma. About 20 percent of women and 1 percent of men report having been pressured or forced into unwanted sex while in the military. The VA notes that not all self-reporters claimed military members com mitted the pressure and assaults. For example, Carlsen said while serving in Operation Restore Hope, Somalia, American service women steered clear of some al lies for safety. We got hit on a lot by the Paki stanis, she said. Carlsen never experienced sexual pressure or assault in the military, but said she was certain other women she served with had. Carlsens also certain that many of the women shes helped military sexual assault. Carlsen believes that being in her 30s when she joined the Army gave her a disposition that warded off potential psychological or physi cal attackers. I didnt take no (expletive), she said. I was no nonsense. Not to be screwed with, and nobody screwed with me. Nikki Gibson was in the Army from 2004 to 2011. The 29-yearold served in Operation Iraqi Freedom, among other assignments. Gibson said she never encountered sexual pressure or assault. I was stationed in Fort Bragg as an MP, she said. Statistical ly you can put (sexual assaults on base) at the same numbers as any civilian city. I personally worked many cases of them. Gibson said she didnt see covering up sexual assaults, or intimidating victims. However, Gibson said its possible that some might have regarded them as a form of physical altercation. A lot of units try to handle any before calling MPs, she said. I do not believe that should be the case. Any assault should be immediately reported. facebook. com/SilentNoMoreFoundation. danaliesegangbook RAPE from page 5 Port St. Lucie | Jupiter | Juno Beachreal people. real results.real estate.It starts with our people.Platinum Properties agents care, listen, and know how to get the job done because they love what they do.
