The statistics are staggering: It's estimated that half a million people have been raped or sexually assaulted while serving our country in the U.S. military, including nearly 100,000 in the past seven years. What's even more astounding is that a vast majority of those assaults have never been reported, let alone investigated or brought to trial.
In this clip from "The Jeff Probst Show," Jeff talks with Amy Ziering and Kirby Dick, the filmmakers behind the eye-opening (and Academy-Award-nominated) documentary feature "The Invisible War," which shines a light on this growing epidemic. Amy and Kirby discuss why this shameful issue has never properly been given the attention is deserves, and why victims are discouraged from speaking up or reporting their assailants.
