The War on Women in Uniform: How Female Veterans Are Fighting Sexual Trauma

How are America’s female post combat veterans transitioning into civilian life?

 

Are female combat veterans victim to MST receiving the correct wellbeing care? Is sexual assault in uniform an epidemic within military combat life?

 

These questions will be addressed in part by Los Angeles based sponsor, Harvesting Happiness for Heroes, at the upcoming acclaimed National Women Veterans Association of America’s first annual conference, directed by NWVAA Founder, Tara Wise. NWVAA’s event will be hosted by San Diego’s Double Tree Hotel at 1646 Front Street, on April 27th-28th, offering a platform for sponsors and experts to address the invisible challenges of veteran and post combat life for women in uniform that have experienced military sexual assault, PTSD, TBI and/or thoughts of suicide.

The NWVAA aims to assist and educate female veterans in their rights, transitions, benefits and wellbeing health with regard to Military Sexual Trauma and combat PTSD and TBI.

Event sponsor Lisa Cypers Kamen, Director of Harvesting Happiness for Heroes, a pending 501 (c) (3) nonprofit organization, will offer a presentation on positive management tools for reconstructing personal wellbeing in post combat, host an open forum for the discussion on the role of positive psychology in healing MST, Combat Trauma and Suicide Prevention, and will be available onsite to address questions or concerns from attendees after her presentation at 11:00 am on April 27th. “HH4Heroes is behind our veteran population one hundred percent.

We are especially conscious of our female veterans that not only face wellbeing challenges from combat missions, but also have become victims of sexual aggression while honorably serving their country. In a military that is held to a high standard of respect, sexual violence should not be tolerated. Unfortunately, this violence does exist and so we are here to help pick up the pieces,” says Cypers Kamen.
