Updated: Mar 7, 2019
Four African American women veterans, who span four decades, want you to know that through it all, they are still standing.
Janet Wilson Carter served in the Army and Army Reserve from 1978-2002. Louise Walker-Sostre served in the Navy from 1986-1996. Erica Upshaw-Givner served in the Army from 1992-1997, and LaShaundra Hammonds served in the United States Marine Corps from 2001-2008. (LaShaundra Hammonds is the wife of the reporter for this story.)
After decades of what they call discrimination, racism, sexual harassment, sexual assault and sexual trauma, they are still standing.
