  • Victim … Survivor … Warrior

    Jun 21, 2013

    FORT SHAFTER, Hawaii -- When she woke, fragments of broken memories flashed through her head as she tried to piece together the night before. "I felt intense pain … that's when I knew I had been raped." Staff Sgt. Mary Valdez describes her life since that realization as a journey from being a victim, to a survivor, to a warrior dedicated to doing whatever she can to make sure what happened to her doesn't happen to others. She demonstrates that dedication by telling her story, most recently as an invited panel member at the Department of the Army's 6th Annual I A.M. Strong Sexual Harassment/Assault Prevention Summit at Joint Base Andrews, Md., June 10-11. During the summit, she interacted with more than 250 general officers, senior noncommissioned officers, and members of Congress, sharing her experience to raise awareness, promote prevention, and ultimately achieve a cultural change in the Army. Valdez now serves as the 8th Theater Sustainment Command's protocol noncommissioned in charge, but she credits her humble beginnings in San Antonio, Texas, with shaping who she is today. The middle child of six to a single mother, she said all of her siblings managed to avoid the typical traps in her neighborhood; in fact, three of them also joined the Army and are combat veterans.
