Beyond the Headlines with Cheryl Jennings: MST

March 27, 2016 at 4:30PM

Each week we focus on a different subject, affecting people who live and work in the Bay Area.

We are talking about an extremely difficult subject today, so I have to warn you some of the stories you'll be hearing will be disturbing. We're talking about rape in the military. We've heard the horrifying statistics about women being raped, but this next fact is equally horrifying. You may not know that more men are raped in the military than women.
