McSally, the nation’s first female fighter pilot to serve in combat, told the Senate Armed Services Committee that she was “preyed upon and raped by a superior officer.”
…McSally served in the Air Force for 26 years and mostly flew the A-10.
…”Like so many women and men, I didn’t trust the system at the time. …I thought I was strong but felt powerless.”
…”I was horrified at how my attempt to share generally my experiences was handled. I almost separated from the Air Force at 18 years of service over my despair. Like many victims, I felt like the system was raping me all over again.”
