Looking back, I didn’t realize I was preyed on by a local recruiter while I was a young, motivated 17 year old poolee. All the recruiters use Instagram and Snapchat as a means of communication with young applicants. This recruiter from another local station added me. 4 years later, due to similar physical fitness goals we started working out together with a small group at the gym. It was plutonic. He eventually pressured me into getting a drink with him, after many no’s, I eventually agreed. I don’t remember leaving my house. I woke up naked, blood in my bed and a trail of vomit leading to my bathroom and my living room destroyed with my clothing scattered around the room. He preyed on me before I was in the Corps, before I was a legal adult. He found his opportunity and took it.
