Ruth Moore of Milbridge is a Military Sexual Trauma survivor who lives with PTSD and Depression. Moore will participate in a press conference in Washinton D.C. next week when Rep. Pingree and Sen. Jon Tester of Montana will introduce the Ruth Moore Act of 2013 to make it easier for survivors of military sexual trauma to get benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. It took Moore 23 years to gain VA benefits and for the military to acknowledge that she was raped while in the service.
