Sam Veteran Congressional Hearing

Testimony Examining how the Department of Veterans Affairs Supports Survivors of Military Sexual Trauma

Veterans are repeatedly re-traumatized and held to standards far too high, given the circumstances of sexual assault. While the changes proposed in bills such as H.R. 1092 would go a long way to improving this system, NYLAG attorney Samantha Kubek offers this testimony to share the experiences of our clients of the ways this system often re-traumatizes survivors, the heavy burden placed on veterans and their representatives, and changes that could help alleviate this situation.
