After nearly 29 years, Navy reverses ‘other than honorable’ discharge for sailor sexually assaulted by six shipmates

Recommended Posts

Heath Phillips was 17 – a fresh young sailor on his first Navy ship. There, a gang of six sailors zeroed in on their prey, raping, beating and sodomizing him repeatedly. He tried reporting them, but for 45 days, his superiors shrugged off his complaints and sent him back for more.

Terrified, Phillips went absent without leave. He got caught and sent back and was molested again so he went AWOL again. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/after-nearly-29-years-navy-reverses-other-than-honorable-discharge-for-sailor-sexually-assaulted-by-six-shipmates-1.530657
