A female Army National Guard soldier who was struggling with harassment, emotional, and physical trauma during her assignment to Kuwait and Afghanistan has committed suicide.
In 2010 and at the age of 21, Morgan Robinson decided to join the military to serve the U.S., her grieving mother, Debbie Robinson, told news outlets.
Six years later, she was assigned to Kuwait and Afghanistan where she was harassed and gang-raped several times by one of her supervisors and colleagues.
The staff sergeant has not reported the assault to Army officials because she was afraid: “She was very scared.”
“Because they threatened her, number one. And number two, she knew that it wouldn’t go anywhere,” Debbie said.
“Nothing happened in Kuweit, so why would they do something in Afghanistan?”
An investigation has been conducted by the Army amid which, punishable actions were taken against Morgan’s supervisor for repeatedly raping her in Kuwait.
“I just didn’t understand how they could actually stand there and look me in the eyes, and hand that to me,” the distraught mom said.
