I was drugged with a drug named G, raped and tramp stamped with a small anchor and sailor hat. 😔 I missed my departure and couldn’t say anything because back then -Don’t ask don’t tell- was at it’s best plus I barely spoke English. I stayed quiet because of embarrassment and was put in the brig for 3 days on bread and water and treated like a dirtbag for the rest of enlistment. My command always kept me doing the shitty work and I was never able to move up regardless all the good I was doing. I saved a man’s life and received a medal from the skipper of the carrier, made 3rd class on my 1st try, and worked hard but it didn’t matter what I did I was always going to be a dirtbag for missing my boat and going AWOL or UA.
It killed me I couldn’t finish my career. 😌
