The Invisible War

The three main objectives of Invisible No More are to raise awareness, effect political and cultural change, and serve as a means of healing for survivors of Military Sexual Assault.

We watched The Invisible War as part of the annual SHARP (Sexual Harassment/Assault Response and Prevention) training requirement. The other requirement is to complete the FY13 SHARP training via the Army Learning Management System (ALMS).

While technically not a unique ed techie gadget or tool, I am doing a post to to share the resources, connect with others, and raise awareness using technology. This impacts all of us, it isn't something that happens in the military but because the military is a subset of society, they are easy targets and tend to get stereotyped by the media, bottom line up front (BLUF) we are all human beings.
