Thank you again, everyone, for being so sweet!
I'm glad you're feeling better, Amy. I am curious how the commander even knew that you checked to see if the abusive soldier went to the required group session? You would think that whomever (whoever ?) is in charge of that group would be cooperating with your office.
I worked at a youth services a long time ago. One of the things that took the air out of my sail was I got in trouble for giving a kid a 1-800 number to call to report abuse. She told me that she was afraid of her father and that he had been abusing her. Our office was only open M-F and we did some limited family counseling, but didn't have anyone who specifically dealt with abuse cases. It turned out that her father was a "prominent member of the community." The director
of Youth Services
told me that I had no right to give her that number!!! :censor::censor::censor:?
Anyway, moral of the story: If the abuser doesn't kill you, the red tape might.
