Military Sexual Trauma (MST) refers to experiences of sexual assault or repeated, threatening sexual harassment and includes any sexual activity against his or her will. Other experiences that fall into the category of MST include unwanted sexual touching or grabbing; threatening, offensive remarks about a person’s body or sexual activities; and threatening and unwelcome sexual advances that a Veteran experienced during their military service. The resulting acute or delayed psychological trauma can be quite significant and debilitating.

1. Define Military Sexual Trauma
2. Describe Common Reactions to MST
3. Discuss the impact of MST on service members (and their families) transitioning from active service member to veteran
