G. V. (Sonny) Montgomery VA Medical Center has been a place of healing and support for the brave men and women who have served in the United States military. It’s a safe haven where they can receive the care and attention they deserve, including those who have experienced military sexual trauma (MST). April is Sexual Assault Awareness Month. As of this month, Jackson VA has accounted for 1,169 reported experiences of MST. These are stories of pain and suffering, but they also represent resilience, strength and the courage to seek help.
