This piece delves deeply into a subject that does not receive enough press - sexual assault in the military. Many of Benedict's observations are spot on (e.g. many people that become military contractors are the "private" type who do stupid things and may just enjoy being a tough guy). Having only dealt with male soldiers during my entire time in the military, I never thought about how "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" affects some fast-tracking female soldiers - many are put out of the military for being homosexual.
