Hello there, my name is Olga Ferrer, I served in the USAF from 1988 to 1997. In 1991 while serving in the Gulf War I was assault by one of my brother in arms. As many victims of assult I suffer in silenced for many years, letting my invisible wound fester inside of me like a cancer. Punishing myself for something that I didn't have control over it. Because of my own experience I have started a campaign called A Black Rose: Campaign for Awareness. Our focus is to bring awareness to the issue of sexual assault, harassment, abuse, stalking, etc. faced by serving members of our armed forces. Our philosophy is that the men and women who serve our nation should not have to worry about being assaulted by their fellow servicemen and women. We invite service members and veterans to request a rose in their honor that represents their trauma and quest for recovery. We hope to put a story to every statistic and make this issue impossible to ignore. We know rape is rape and we believe that a person's right to be free of sexual assault does not end when he or she dons the uniform.
At this time we have over 500 roses requested by survivors of Military Sexual Trauma. It cost us at least $1.00 to buy and prepare each one of the roses requested. For just one dollar you can sponsor and suport a veteran or military member of MST.
