Nineteen year-old Army PFC LaVena Johnson, was found dead on a military base in Balad, Iraq in 2005. The U.S. Army ruled Lavena's death a suicide, but an autopsy report and photographs revealed Johnson had a broken nose, black eye, loose teeth, burns from a corrosive chemical on her genitals, and a gunshot wound that seemed inconsistent with suicide. LaVena's father, John Johnson, shares his family's fight to get answers from the military about his daughter's death.

LaVena's story is the eighth mini-documentary that Protect Our Defenders has produced about military sexual trauma. www.protectourdefenders.com

Protect Our Defenders Foundation is a human rights organization. We honor, support and give voice to the brave women and men in uniform who have been raped or sexually assaulted by fellow service members. We seek to fix the military training, investigation and adjudication systems for sexual harassment, assault and rape --systems which often re-victimize assault survivors by blaming them and failing to prosecute perpetrators. www.protectourdefenders.com
