    1. Hello, my name is Joanne,
      Maybe someone can tell me why the`powers that be` are dragging up
      supposedly things of the `past`, long time past – in a different Era,
      that should have bee `dealt with` at the time!! Undoubtedly some of
      the `accusations MAY be true, BUT, why, on a whim should there have to be
      a `witch-hunt` by some `offended` women that could not, even as Military
      women deal with at the time in question?? We all realise that there are
      `issues` that should have been dealt with at the time!!! – but, to ruin these
      mens` lives because of `here-say years after without probable witnesses even
      is TOTALLY WRONG!! Ever heard the phrase `Let bygones be bygones`
      or `let sleeping dogs lie` or, how about FORGIVENESS!!!!
      Also how is it that we never `hear` rogue stories from the MEN who are a lot
      of the time `accosted` – some married men are `seduced` regularly in Society
      not just in the Military, then THEY are to Blame!!
      Time that they `spoke up `and defended themselves huh!!!! IT WORKS BOTH
      WAYS!! LET`S BE FAIR!!!!!!!!!!
      Joanne ☺
